Wheatear still

Overcast, 12º, light NW.

A trip to Farmoor reservoir this morning where there was a Twite and a Great Grey Shrike.

Missed the Twite but saw the Shrike.

On the way, back I dropped into Lollingdon Hill, lots of Fieldfare initially most heading towards the downs.

In addition, there was a Wheatear still on the hill, certainly the latest I have seen one in the county.

Also 3 Corn Bunting, 20+ Linnet, 6+ Yellowhammer and 4 Red-legged Partridge.

2 Roe Deer nearby.

Recently in the garden there has been a Treecreeper with one leg, interesting to see how it coped climbing the trees. Using its tail to counter the loss of the right leg, it did lose its grip a few times but recovered quickly.

A Wren singing in the garden 2 hours after dark!
