Shrike no Show

Overcast, 0º, light SE. Brrrrr

No sign of the Shrike today despite quite a few birders looking.
No systematic count this evening but three hundred plus Corn Bunting again roosting at the marsh along with Reed Bunting, no Yellowhammer today.

A few Teal flying over and a couple of Siskin noted and the Cetti’s Warbler seen and heard calling again.
Two Grey Heron also around.
A Harris Hawk also flew over and headed downriver towards the four arches, it has been around for about three years now and is seen intermittently anywhere between Shillingford and Goring and one possibly two Sparrowhawk noted!

Apologies to Alex who came down yesterday evening, I forgot to mention that he saw two Raven fly over Papist way yesterday.

A Stoat also seen today.

Please keep to either Ferry rd or the Thames path, there is no public access on the marsh. Thanks!
Corn Buntings at dusk.
