Lollingdon

Sunny, 16ยบ, light NW, a pleasant day!

An afternoon spent around the Lollingdon area again and joined by Bob Wyatt today, the hill again relatively quiet with just a couple of Whitethroat along the hedgerow and a few Linnet, also Yellowhammer and Corn Bunting present, a Grey Heron over and the usual Buzzard and Red Kite in the area.
The fields to the north of the hill had up to three Lesser Whitethroat, another Whitethroat, at least one Blackcap, a Garden Warbler, a Chiffchaff and a couple of Song Thrush.

At least one and possibly three Yellow Wagtail seen and six Swallow.
A Common Lizard seen briefly that must have been basking in the sun and disappeared in to cover on our approach.

Butterflies notable today with Brimstone, Small White, Peacock, Orange Tip, Red Admiral, Holly Blue, Small Tortoiseshell.
