Lapland Bunting still present

Re-located the Lapland Bunting today in the same place. Seems to be keeping in with the Skylarks now.
A few other 'new' bits on site including 2 Stonechat, a Bullfinch, 1 Shelduck, 1 Water Rail on 100 acre, 280+ Teal, 6 Shoveler and the Peregrine was about.
Put these bad photos of the Lap Bunt to illustrate the flight jizz- which combined with the call is how nearly all Lapland Buntings are seen at Beddington. If you click on the shots- even with this quality you can see the diagnostic reddish-brown greater coverts framed by white wing bars.
