Also 3 Great Crested Grebe, 3 Shelduck, 40+ Teal, 4 Shoveler, 6 Little Grebe, 40+ Mallard, 30+ Tufted Duck and 2 Green Sandpiper.
Good to see Dave Lambert over the farm yesterday, who visited to sound record the Tree Sparrows (above)
. Cheers to Dave for advice on the Beddington Nature Reserve Campaign. Visitors are always welcome so just let us know if anyone wants to visit. Grey Plover
: Over at 1210- Perhaps the same bird that Graham saw over Holmethorpe earlier in the day.
A fly-through Cuckoo
from a few days ago. A good easter's local birding.
