Getting colder...Brrrrr

Sunny, clear, 0º, light NNE, somewhat chilly at dusk.

Cholsey Marsh.

Just over 120 Corn Buntings at the roost this evening, 20+ Reed Bunting and 5 Meadow Pipits.

Given the current temperatures we are having, I would expect this increase.

In addition, 2 Common Snipe flew off the marsh.

According to the fencing contractors, the fencing on part of the marsh should be finished by the 4th Feb.

Fieldfares and Redwing widespread today, seen feeding on roadside Hawthorn berries and the first Redwings noted in the meadow today feeding. Also several Mistle and Song Thrushes seen in the meadow or flying over.

No sign of the plover flock on Cholsey Hill.
