I was not around today so no birding or garden news, as I did not get home until after dark, but..................

The Great Grey Shrike seen again today between Little Stoke and South Stoke close to the riverbank on the opposite side of the Thames from Cholsey marsh mid afternoon.

N.B. If visiting this site in the late afternoon, please avoid disturbing the roost site on the marsh, the Shrike can be viewed from Ferry Lane, thank you.

Report of up to two hundred Corn Bunting estimated at the roost this evening, not unusual for that increase in these weather conditions.

The Cetti’s Warbler seen today and up to four Water Rail heard and there appears to be around sixty Common Snipe roosting on the marsh.

Also a “white rumped” Common Buzzard in the area so be aware.

Reed Buntings visiting gardens more frequently at the moment with at least three gardens in the village reporting them as being present in the last few days and I saw two in a central Wantage garden today.
