    Canon upgrade; what would you do?

    Resting Buzzard in Bedington Park, South London

    I walk round Beddington fairly regularly when I look after my friends dog.

    Birding in London...

    Sharon, if you cant afford Kew (£10 entry), bear in mind that Barnes is (£6.75 entry). I highly recommend Bushy Park, it's a lovely place and free! Dylan.
