Here and there.

Mist and fog, 10º, hardly any wind.
Approximately 30 Teal, 4 Shovelor, 6 Wigeon, 1 Gadwall and 2 Common Snipe.
There was a Reed Bunting in Sainsbury’s car park Didcot, a rather unusual spot for one!
The scrape at Day’s Lock is very dry, only one small area of standing water!
A Kingfisher seen, a Nuthatch heard and a male Blackcap (sub song heard) at Day’s Lock.
Lollingdon Hill again quiet, 3 Corn Buntings heard singing in the vicinity, but am anticipating returning Wheatears soon.
Garden still an active area with the 3 Blackcaps still visiting, 2 Song Thrush quite regular and 3 Mallards now regular this week, along with the usual visitors.
At least 2 Tawny Owls vocal last night in the garden and meadow and 2 or 3 Great-spotted Woodpeckers around.
The Rookeries in Church rd have started to become very active this week, possibly 30 to 40 pairs nest building.
2 Red Admirals in garden yesterday.
