Beckenham is a residential area in southeast London with a lush Kelsey Park stretched along the slow-moving River Beck (a modest creek by most standards Americans would recognize). The most numerous bird in the park was the svelte Black-headed Gull in its eclipse plumage with only a dark smudge left on its cheek. There were also many geese of the two species.
