A quieter day!

Sunny, breezy, 22º, fresh SW.

A walk out to Lollingdon on a sunny but breezy day, a few Chiffchaff around, a Reed Bunting and a few Yellowhammer.

The Spotted Flycatcher family still around and a Willow Warbler nearby, also a couple of Whitethroat and a Blackcap, and two Grey Herons feeding along a ditch, the hill had a couple of Kestrel and a few Jackdaw and Rook enjoying the windy weather over the hill.

A finch flock seen on a recently cut field had around eighty birds, mainly Goldfinch and Linnet and around ten Greenfinch.

Some of the local Swallows and House Martins have left!

The garden getting busier with a family of Greenfinch, a couple of Goldfinch and several Chaffinch turning up regularly and at least five Blackbirds, a Stock Dove and the usual cast of, Blue Tit, Great Tit, Robin, Dunnock and Wren.

A Muntjac Deer barking in the meadow tonight!
