I planned to go to Canons today but the awful weather ruled that out and I spent most of the day at Beddington. It was a pretty productive and enjoyable day, some of which was spent catching up with Cliff Allan and Ian Jones. A pair of Pintail on the main lake early on was a good start and the rest of the day produced the long-staying juvenile Iceland Gull, 1-2 Caspian Gulls and two Jack Snipes.

Pintail is a scarce bird locally
