Sunny, 4º, little or no wind.

Finally got our share of the Waxwings this week, a belated record of three in a private garden for one lucky observer!
Went in to Wallingford again today and the river level has dropped by around ten centimetres so providing no more rain it should continue to drop, although the water table is saturated that will take some time to even out......... More rain due for Sunday apparently!

A brief (one hour) visit to Lollingdon hill today just before dusk, a single Buzzard on the south side was about it but the hedgerow on the west and north side held over twenty Blackbird, five Song Thrush, three Redwing and a single Fieldfare finishing off the diminishing supply of haws and berries.
Three Corn Bunting and two Yellowhammer flew over and a single Jay seen, the Linnet flock was down to around fifty and ten plus Chaffinch present, also a small tit flock comprising Long-tailed, Blue and Great around twelve birds in all.

Forgot to mention quite a few Starling (c200) also feeding around the periphery of the various flooded areas yesterday.
          Common Buzzard, there briefly then off.
