Y'day afternoon (Friday), Keith Owen, Jim Gurney and I found a Slavonian Grebe at Brogboro' Lake. It was at the windsurfers end and still present at dusk.

Lunchtime, the Ring-necked Parakeet was again showing well it its favoured field up the farm track at Southcott Village, Linslade

Stockgrove Country Park was a waste of time....... 1 Nuthatch seen + 2 heard but no Mandarins and no Marsh Tits

8 Egyptian Geese were near the entry kiosk at Woburn Park

M J Palmer

David Kramer confirms the continued presence of the SLAV at Priory Country Park too

Still quite a few WAXWINGS scattered about the county, and the male MERLIN at Broom
