Lollingdon Hill

Cloudy a few sunny spells, 17º, light SE, then more rain!

An afternoon trip up Lollingdon Hill produced 4 Raptor species, Kestrel, Sparrowhawk, Buzzard and a Red Kite being mobbed by a Carrion Crow.

Corn Buntings, Linnets, Yellowhammer and Skylark all in song and a pair of Blue Tits foraging the Hawthorn on the hill, several Swift feeding overhead and a steady flow of Rooks and Jackdaws backwards and forwards from around the village to the pig farms on the downs and  2 Yellow Wagtails as flyovers.

2 Stock Doves now feeding in the garden with several Woodpigeon.

This afternoon a Grey Squirrel took a leap of faith (3.5m) from one of the trees and made it above the baffle on to the bird feeders so subsequently had to move it all another 2 metres in.
