Aythya influx at Beddington

75 Tufted Ducks and 30 Pochard on the lake today which is a marked influx especially since the freeze up. Teals were very vocal and displaying, Shovelers were shovelling in tight groups (although numbers were higher during the freeze up) and there were 10 Gadwall, 3 Wigeon and 4 Shelduck. A Redshank on the southern lake, Lapwings are back up to 30+ and a tit flock on the lake edge included a Goldcrest.
