Lollingdon and the Lees.

Sunny spells, 18º, light to fresh S.

At least 2 Tawny Owls in garden last night just after midnight both calling.
A quiet day out today, several Swifts and Swallows cruising over farmland and House Martins closer to the village.

A lone Kestrel hunting by the Lees and a single Lesser Black-back Gull flew SE.
Blackcap, Whitethroat and Chiffchaff were the only warblers heard in full song but some brief snatches of song from Sedge and a Reed Warbler.

Several Corn Bunting singing as were 8 Reed Buntings and 4 Yellow Wagtails seen.

Water levels in the streams and ditches are very low at the moment.
Just Speckled Wood, Small Whites and Orange Tip Butterflies seen today and a few Large Red Damselflies.

A Great-spotted Woodpecker and a Treecreeper in the garden this evening.
