ANOTHER GOOD AUTUMN DAY AT BEDDINGTON
I finally caught up with the Pectoral Sandpiper today but it was at distance on the enclosed beds (above). Another good bird on the enclosed beds- a juvenile Knot and two Dunlins flew over. There was also 2 Whinchat (one with a Stonechat from the obs window) and 1 Wheatear, 10+ Meadow Pipit, 3 Yellow Wagtail over and also a heavy passage of hirundines- mainly House Martins. One male Peregrine was causing havoc. Also looked like there were more Shoveler around.
Johnny got a photo of the Knot:
