Redstarts & Spot Flys

Sunny spells, 24º, light W.

A visit to Lollingdon hill on the way home today found the six Spotted Flycatchers still in the area and three Redstarts. One with the flycatchers, one in the hedgerow on the west of the hill and another on the north side of the hill.

A Willow Warbler and two Chiffchaff also seen. Another visit there later with TW and we could only locate one of the Redstarts.

Large numbers of Corvids in the area (mainly Rooks with some Jackdaws), and fewer gulls. Only two Kestrels seen near the hill, a Buzzard and two Red Kite.

Five Greenfinch in the garden this evening, at least two juveniles and two Chaffinch.

Brown Hawker and Blue Emperor dragonflies seen.
