Early Spring at Beddington

Beautiful weather today at the farm. A few bits about including the first summer Iceland Gull (pic 1), adult Mediterranean Gull (pic 2) Redshank (pic 3), Water Pipit, Common Buzzard and Peregrine. There were also three singing Chiffchaffs (pic 4) and I missed a White Wagtail. Waterfowl numbers are declining this time of year with 30+ Teal, 10 Shoveler, 2 Green Sandpiper, 4 Snipe but still 30+ Tufted Duck, 5 Pochard and 2 Little Grebe. 4 Shelduck are ignoring the boxes we put out last spring.
