What a day. I was happy to get a Beddington tick (now 209 for the site) when I saw two distant Waxwings flying away from me. I have waited a long time for them and just like London buses taking part in a some kind of invasion- within a few minutes another 35 appeared (pic 1 and 2).
Then I went for a walk and flushed 4 Jack Snipe and re found the superb juvenile Iceland Gull (pic 3 and 4)- a very well marked one. There were still good numbers of Skylarks (pic 5) about and the day vis mig count ended at 220+. Also 8 Yellowhammer (pic 6) still on the mound, 100+ Linnet (pic 7) and also 20+ Redwing, 10+ Fieldfare, 2 Goldcrest, 1 Chiffchaff, I missed 100+ Golden Plover but saw a few flocks of Lapwings (pic 8) on the move (50+ in total).
