Cholsey, 31st Jan

Sunny spells, 2º, light ESE.

250+ Golden Plover over Cholsey Hill, looked as if they were going to settle but did not see where or if.

20+ Siskin Caps Lane feeding on Birch with around the same number of Goldfinch and several Chaffinch.

Lollingdon Hill quiet with a Buzzard and 2 Red Kite over, a Robin, 2 Redwing, a Song Thrush and a Blackbird in the hedgerow below the hill.

BBOWT have started the fencing at Cholsey Marsh! The more cynical amongst us would say they wanted to complete the work before we meet next week! OR do they want to show us what they have achieved?

Topping up the bird feeders this afternoon when I heard several Long-tailed Tits giving alarm calls, a few seconds later a male Peregrine drifted south over the meadow.

Around a dozen Chaffinch and 6 House Sparrows feeding on the deck below the feeders with several Goldfinch and Greenfinch feeding on nyger and sunflower hearts on the feeder and 2 Blackbirds and a Song Thrush feeding on some sultanas I put out.
