COMMON CROSSBILLS at Stockgrove Park

I was able to get up to Stockgrove Country Park this afternoon for an hour or so. Really chuffed to find a pair of COMMON CROSSBILLS. Initially thought I was still in Bucks but double checked county boundaries and I was about 100 metres inside Bedfordshire. The Crossbills flew off in the direction of Bucks but I didn't actually see them in the county (Lucy Flower Birding & Photography).
