Rain, rain, rain.

Overcast, rain, 12º, light to fresh SW.

A very wet and windy day and not very conducive to birding etc. The only birds of note were approximately fifty Golden Plover on Cholsey hill this morning, possibly part of the flock that BW had on the floods at South Moreton yesterday.
Four species of Tit in the garden today, Long-tailed, Coal, Great and Blue and a slight increase in Goldfinch numbers.
A good influx of Waxwings into the UK recently and there have been a few Waxwings seen in Oxfordshire last week (Oxford and Otmoor) so worth keeping an eye out, feeding on Rowan and any other berry bearing plant.
