It's finally happened!! A Black-winged stilt has turned up!! During a promising day on the mound with good Hirundine and Yellow Wagtail movement the highlight so far had been a Cuckoo which landed on Hangmans. Having to go home to finish some work, the phone goes off, the name displayed is ZACH!! Uh oh!! this boy is turning into one of the best birders i know and normally when he phones it's good news. Well he and Anand had bumped into this beast in the South East corner. The last one was in 1955!! What a tick - well done boys

Well here we are. Its 2022 its migration and a new crew have appeared at the Farmlands.
But today belongs to Bar Wits
A few other bits and bobs - this Kestrel now seems to follow us as we walk across the mound
Maybe only 1 Skylark on the mound
And a nice Wheatear

Only made it as far as Beddington Park today. Surprising amount of dog walkers for one small park!! Still that kept me close too and in the River Wandle for a while. Good to see Grey Wagtails and a Little Egret fishing around the leaf litter and litter trying to find some food.
