With a cold northerly blowing and threatening skies an intrepid few turned up for the Lapwing walk (including somebody from the Waste Industry that backed our hopes that it wasn't too late for Viridor to turn things round) but across the Lapwing walk and the Extinction Rebellion protest at least 60 people were involved. Unfortunately on such a cold bank holiday Saturday not many public were using the park either but the day was a great success nonetheless in launching the Save the Lapwing campaign (and highlighting other Beddington Farmlands issues related to the incinerator). The Save the Lapwing campaign will run until next Spring when the Lapwings will or wont return to breed. More details HERE

Rather poignantly we didn't find any Lapwings on our Lapwing walk. However thanks to Roger we did have Great White Egret, Peregrine and Hobby.
Here's a few images of the day.
