Summer at Beddington Farmlands

Seems to be plenty of young birds around including Long-tailed Tits. Also plenty of young Great and Blue Tits around. I saw my first juvenile Pied Wagtail too. Not so much singing now amongst the breeding birds although the Whitethroat outside my window has started up again so might be on it's second breeding attempt. There were two Green Sandpipers and a male Teal on 100 acre which are presumably the first 'autumn' migrants.
Swifts are present in the summer evenings hawking insects over the lake. There must have been over 200 a couple of nights ago.
