Lollingdon Hill.

Overcast, 12º, Fresh WNW.

A flock of Buntings on the west side of the hill, feeding in a field of stubble comprised 22 Corn Bunting and 17 Yellowhammer, a handful of Greenfinch, Chaffinch and Goldfinch with them.

A steady stream of Gulls and Corvids flying over, heading towards the downland to the south, Rooks, Jackdaws and Lesser Blackback Gulls and in addition, a Raven flew over heading north, heard calling initially. Another large corvid flew over in the same direction about a minute after and may have been a second one but did not get a good view of it.

Around 20 Skylarks also seen in the vicinity, as well as 4 Stock Doves, 2 Buzzards and 2 Kestrels.
