Today's Highlights

A SLAVONIAN GREBE was new in this morning at Broom GP, whilst one herd of 10 wild swans, probably Bewick's, flew southeast over Southill and Shefford. Nearby, all 10 EURASIAN WHITE-FRONTED GEESE (3 adults) remain in the grass field east of G & M Growers.

The juvenile GREAT NORTHERN DIVER remains on Brogborough Lake, with the female RED-BREASTED MERGANSER still on Millbrook Pillinge

Late afternoon saw 2 SHORT-EARED OWLS hunting over the rough field NW of Brogborough Landfill
