Canons Farm and Beddington Farmlands, 9th September 2017

A decent early morning session at Canons turned up local 'value' in the form of a Sand Martin, a Grey Wagtail, the adult male Peregrine again, a Stonechat, two Yellow Wagtails, a Cormorant, four Canada Geese, a Grey Heron and a trickle of Swallows and Meadow Pipits overhead. An evening walk with Christian C at Beddington produced a 1cy Yellow-legged Gull, the two lingering juvenile Ruff, two Common and seven Green Sandpipers and continuing reasonable early autumn numbers of Teal and Shoveler (56 and 27) along with the Wigeon again. Six Swifts made for a good count this late in the season for the species.
