The Common Sandpiper was still present and there is a leucistic Herring Gull around (above). There were 2 Wigeon on the lake in addition to 200+ Teal and 30+ Shoveler. One Peregrine, 2 Kestrel and one Sparrowhawk.

Ring-necked Parakeets- a former Beddington vagrant. Several hundred birds now fly over Beddington at dusk to roost somewhere to the north.
