Cholsey Marsh

Sunny, a few rain showers, 6º, light SSW

Approximately 70 Corn Buntings at the roost this evening, also a Water Rail heard.

A small roost of Fieldfare and Redwing in the Alders along the river bank that came in late numbering less than 100 birds.

A Sparrowhawk flew along the riverbank, a Kestrel over the marsh and a Grey Heron high overhead.

2 Mute Swans on the river and 40 “Greylag” Geese and 100+ Canada Geese on the opposite bank towards the 4 Arches.

A belated report of a Firecrest in Cholsey towards the end of last year, I spoke to a birdwatcher today who found, unfortunately a dead Firecrest in his garden, having apparently flown into a window.

Lollingdon Hill very quiet today, 2 Pied Wagtail there.
