Beddington Farmlands

I ran one final twitch for the Twite in the morning, which thankfully showed to all attendees, who seemed to enjoy their visit. A Dartford Warbler along the fence line on the landfill site was a welcome and unexpected bonus for everybody, and a second-winter Caspian Gull was on the North Lake when I scanned through the larids before people started arriving. Nine Pochards were also on the North Lake and 34 Lapwings were counted, along with a Snipe. Also around were two Wigeon, two Shelducks, an Egyptian Goose, five Meadow Pipits, four Reed Buntings, three Cetti's Warblers and four Skylarks of note.
