The Sound Approach meeting at Beddington Farmlands

Pete Alfrey and I met up with Paul Morton from The Sound Approach for a short walk around Beddington Farmlands. I've recently built a new website for Beddington Farmlands, to build support for the creation of a nature reserve on this important London site for natural history. Conservation organisations, bird groups, local businesses and other groups have declared support for the reserve, and The Sound Approach are also keen to support us.

Passage migrants noted today included 2 Whinchat on the mound, 6 House Martin W (there was a large number moving this morning before our visit) and 5 Barn Swallow W. 1 Pintail dropped on the Northern Lake which also held 4 Pochard and 2 Eurasian Wigeon, and c50 Northern Shoveler moving between the Northern and Southern Lakes. Also noted were 1+ Peregrine, 8 Northern Lapwing and c28 Grey Heron.
