Weekend Highlights

On Saturday, many of us enjoyed views of Peter Jones' 3 TUNDRA BEAN GEESE at Cainhoe GP east of Clophill (a pair with a single juvenile) - all three being birds having been present since Thursday - whilst I also watched the juvenile OSPREY successfully catch a Trout at Manor Farm Fisheries, north of Biggleswade, during the morning......

A NORTHERN WHEATEAR by the Information Centre at Dunstable Downs was exceptionally late, whilst singletons EURASIAN WHITE-FRONTED GEESE on Sunday were seen at Grovebury Sand Pit and Bigglewade Common.

MJP and others had 3 CASPIAN GULLS in the roost at Stewartby Lake on Saturday afternoon
