Dotterels (Part of a flock of 15 and one being chased off by a Magpie)
Greenshank and 1 Redshank
Thankfully so many other people will be writing about the flock of 15 Dotterel at Canons Farm today (the first in the county since 1884) that I can go and make my dinner.

Loads of migrants at Beddington today and I've been trying to keep an eye on things from the window and popping over there- lots of hirundines moving through, good numbers of Wheatear and Yellow Wags and a few waders.

Yesterday I had these Greenshank and Redshank (above) flying past the kitchen window.
