My neice Francesca being a London birder for a day
Male Wood Duck (Francesca Drinkald)
Chiffchaff at Beddington
Brent Goose at Beddington (above and below)
Did the farm this morning and got a surprise with a Brent Goose on the lakes. Also lots of Whitethroats in now, more Chiffchaffs, Blackcaps, a Lesser Whitethroat on the Horse Field, a few Swallows, a Wheatear on the mound and a noticeable drop in the number of wildfowl with only 15+ Teal about.
In the afternoon went to the London Wetland Center for the London Wild Bird Watch event- bought a few books, got some food, had a look round the reserve and made a substantial donation to the swear box after my neice hit me in the eye with a plastic frog because she started getting bored.
