Bits and Pieces. 23rd March.

Sunny, 16º, Light NE.

Cholsey Marsh
25 Linnet (on opposite bank), 2 Chiffchaff, Kingfisher, Jay, Great-spotted Woodpecker, many Common Toads.

14+ Yellowhammer, 12 Stock Dove, 1 Chiffchaff, 2 Mistle Thrush, 2 Song Thrush, 3 Fieldfare.

Blackcap, Mistle Thrush.

                                   Great-spotted Woodpecker

Common Toads, guess you could call this a mating frenzy! There were several "balls" of Toads on and near the footpath.
The calls were higher in pitch than frogs I heard earlier last week. This is a different call to the normal mating croaks by the male toads.
