Cholsey, 29th Oct

Several Goldcrest on Lollingdon hill today (also a few near the four Arches along the Thames).

A bird not seen in Cholsey for a few years in the shape of a Tree Sparrow seen in association with some Chaffinch along a hedgerow near the hill, also some Corn Bunting in the vicinity.
A flock of approximately five hundred Starling (which I also saw as I came home today) around the hill ranging around the pig farm and nearby fields, also good numbers of Fieldfare and Redwing.

Thanks to TW for the information.
Appears not to have been much in the garden recently as the feeders are still relatively full after my ten-day absence, however a Moorhen feeding at dusk and a Pheasant trying to gain entry to the garden by trying to walk through the fence rather than jump or fly over it!
