More new arrivals

3 Garganey found at the crack of dawn by Burgess were new in, but the excitement of Little Gulls and our first Common Tern had all gone.

A lunchtime visit yielded a cracking female 2cy Peregrine, which took a Lapwing in flight! Peregrines in Beds are becoming common place now, and can be expected almost anywhere. However I hardly ever see them hunting!

After school visit to the neglected Gypsy Lane end produced the female type Merlin again, this time chasing a Skylark high in the air. No pipits, and only three Pied Wags, but also a pair of LRP's, and some hissing Shelducks.
