Lollingdon hill

Sunny, 6°, light WSW, chilly!
Have been given the OK from the hospital to drive and more importantly get out and get some birding done (with caution)!
As usual decided on a visit to Lollingdon hill for about an hour, quite a few Thrushes there with a flock of two hundred plus consisting mainly of Fieldfare, approximately twenty Redwing, five Blackbird, three Song Thrush and two Mistle Thrush with most feeding on the hawthorns on the south slope. Amazing how many Fieldfare can fit in one hawthorn bush! Also a flock of around one hundred Fieldfare flew from the northern side and flew towards the downs.
Several Meadow Pipit and Skylark nearby, a single Buzzard a Jay and three Pied Wagtail flew over and a single Chiffchaff still present in a hedgerow along the east side.
