More about Beecholme


Beecholme is also the first postwar "mixed development" housing scheme in Hackney, with a mixture of houses and flats with the taller block having five storeys and containing one-bedroom and bedsit accommodation. It is featured in Volume 15 of Hackney History and was the site of Beecholme House, the family home of Maj. John André (d. 1780), who was executed as a British spy in the American War of Independence.

Bird sings at the Beecholme Estate - NEW REPLACEMENT VIDEO

Bird sings - again.
2nd video new today Tue 21st April 2009
Replaces the video previously posted here.

This is a new video of the same bird singing. At least I'm pretty sure it's the same bird.
I had to tape it as it was so loud and seems to vary day to day.
It's hard to believe it's 2 minutes from central Hackney and 200 yards from the Lea Bridge roundabout.
Hope you enjoy this one even more than the last - there's less background traffic noise.
