Skywatching 23rd August

Top to bottom: Common Tern, Greenshank and 'Commic' Terns

Classic autumn skywatching weather produced some good visible migration across London. At Beddington we had 13+2 'Common' Tern, 8 Greenshank, 105 Sand Martin, 70+ Swallow, 20+ Swift and 8 Yellow Wagtail going over. On the deck were 1 Snipe, 7 Green Sandpiper, 1 Black-tailed Godwit, 15 Shoveler, 25+ Teal, 1 Gadwall, 3 Wheatear on the mound and 1 Hobby.

Other London sites wiped the floor with us with Barnes and Rainham witnessing exceptional skywatching.
