A short walk Woburn towards Potsgrove this pm (SP945327 to 942313), male Peregrine, initially perched on tree before flying towards Potsgrove, a Raven, four Buzzards, inc 2 very grey and white individuals, and then just to remind me that I was still in Beds, 14 Chinese Water Deer including one group of 12.

This morning the 3 TUNDRA BEANS at Cainhoe were in the field immediately west of the pits, with Canadas, seen from the footpath. A bunch of Greylags flew in to join them, then they all took off and landed on the eastern most pit where they showed extremely well. Around 10 o'clock they all took off , flew towards Clophill and landed out of sight beyond a hedge. A very showy Water Rail on the same pit (Barry Nightingale)
