This morning there was a swathe of yellow across the disturbed ground at Beddington Sewage Farm and most of it belonged to the flowers of Colt's-foot. There is something slightly disturbing about this plant, as it punches its way through the earth with reptilian-scaled stems to unfurl the buttery-yellow flowers.
Not much on the move, not even a sniff of hirundine despite a steady southerly wind. A Dunlin and two Water Pipts were highlights, although as usual much enjoyment was had with the lads, standing by the northern lake, bantering away.
