All 15 adult BEWICK'S SWANS still at Radwell; and 2 CURLEWS

20 CORN BUNTINGS in Hatch Lane, Thurleigh
The 15 adult BEWICK'S SWANS still at Radwell with about 190 Mutes. Loads of Wigeon and a female Goosander among them. Strange to see it dabbling with the Wigeon on the flooded A6 pit. Also 2 CURLEW on the edge of the flood nearer the southernmost railway bridge. At Felmersham, a flock of c20 Lesser Redpolls with one maybe two Mealies. (Richard Bashford)
