Relocation, relocation

Apart from relocating the female Eider on No. 5 and the 2 Scaup on West Warwick, I saw my first Siskin of the year, a male, singing in Alders by the stream South of the East Warwick and at 16:50 found an adult Peregrine on the pylon at the South end of the Lockwood (ref no. VC6). After a short while it flew south to the pylon by the entrance (VC7) above the crow's nest. I don't know if this is one of the Edmonton pair, or one of Stoke Newington’s three.

Only 7 Shelduck today, but 19 Goldeneye, 76 Teal, 112 Gadwall and only 2 Shoveler. (Didn't have time to walk all the way around the Lockwood so may have missed some ducks.) c.60 Fieldfare at the South end of the East Warwick with 2 Redwing, also 4 Lapwing SW and 3 Green Sandpiper on No 4.
