Lollingdon and Standlake.

Sunny spells, 10º, light WNW, a few showers.

A quick visit to Lollingdon Hill turned up a nice male Ring Ouzel feeding on the hill along with 8 Wheatear.

A stop on the way back this evening and the Ring Ouzel was still present (Tony Williams there watching it) along with 10 Wheatear, also 20+ Meadow Pipit, Pied Wagtail, Linnet and Chaffinch.

2 Swallows flew through this evening.

Whilst up on the hill I got a text from Badger to say there was a Black-winged Stilt at Pit 60, Standlake.

I got to Standlake about an hour later and luckily the Stilt was still there, as well as the Black-winged Stilt there was also 2 Common Sandpiper, Little Ringed Plover, Redshank, Common Snipe, Gadwall, 1 Goosander, a pair of Red-crested Pochard, many other ducks and Geese, Kingfisher, Oystercatcher, Swallows and Sand Martins.
