Beddington Farmlands, 15th August 2017

I had time for a quick morning walk with Christian C at Beddington. Unfortunately, the Cattle Egret was nowhere to be seen but we did find the juvenile Wood Sandpiper on Jim's Pit, along with around six Green Sandpipers. Other highlights included a surprise first-summer Caspian Gull ringed 'G0UT', seen quite a bit on the Thames recently by Josh J, as well as two Little Egrets, a Common Sandpiper, a couple of House Martins and a few Swifts still moving through...
