Biggleswade Common 27/8

A very enjoyable 'chatfest' on Biggleswade Common this lunchtime comprised:

1 female-type Redstart in a hedge about 300m east of Furzenhall Farm.

1 Whinchat in the last remaining 'stand' of unmown vegetation, at
right-angles to the bridleway south of Furzenhall Farm.

1 Wheatear in the horse paddocks behind the stables.

All the best,

Tony Plosz
