Lollingdon Hill in the cold and wet

Sunny spells, showers, 8º, light to fresh WNW.

Ventured up to the hill again and got caught in a few showers of rain plus it’s a lot colder than of late.

2 Wheatear still on the hill, favouring the western end and 24 Corn Bunting on wires on the western edge. Maybe this is a pre-roost gathering? Will check Cholsey Marsh soon to see if the roost there is being used yet.

Also Fieldfare heard but not seen.

3 different Hedgehogs seen in garden recently, 1 is the large male that frequents the garden and 2 other smaller ones. They all look as though they should survive the winter as all 3 look a fair size.

Diversity of garden birds is not great at the moment, 3 Tit species, 3 Finch, Wood Pigeon, Collared Dove, Robin, Dunnock and Wren being frequent. As winter progresses I’m sure things will change!
