Skywatching from the obs

North east winds over the last two days producing not too much in the skies over Beddington. 1 Swallow, 3 Chaffinch and 1 Sand Martin were my lot. Single Willow Warbler and Blackcap in the obs garden. Hobby a couple of times over head.

Ducks flying between the lake and hundred acre include 3 Wigeon (bottom), 50+ Shoveler (top), 6 Gadwall and 50+ Teal (image 3). Green Sandpiper and Snipe over.

Good numbers of gulls- probably 1500-2000 Herring Gull, 40+ L.B.B Gull, 200 Black-headed Gull and 10+ Common Gull.
