Wet stuff again!

Overcast, a few rain showers and a thunderstorm, 20º, light to fresh S.

Went to Cholsey Marsh but it was tipping down so had to give up on that, then later a brief visit to Lollingdon  between rain showers, the Spotted Flycatchers were still present but have moved by about 500m, a couple of Willow Warblers and Chiffchaffs still present also.

No flycatchers seen this afternoon!

The hill had 2 Kestrel, a Buzzard and 2 Red Kite around along with 3 Magpie and 4 Carrion Crow on the hill, a Chiffchaff briefly in the Hawthorns and a Yellow Wagtail over. A small flock (8) of Long-tailed Tits on the north side.

3 Grey and 4 Red-legged Partridge noted this afternoon, also 9 Mistle Thrush, 8 on the north side and 1 on the south side.

Still large numbers of Corvids and Gulls in the area.

A few species back and visible in the garden again, 2 Robins, 2 Chaffinch, a few Blue and Great Tits and a couple of juvenile Blackbirds as well as the regular Stock Doves.
