Cold and quiet

Overcast, 1º, light ENE.

Cholsey marsh was very quiet today the only bird of note was a Chiffchaff in the Sallows. The river is still high but not over the banks and the marsh is still draining in to the Thames at several places but still quite flooded.
Lollingdon hill was still quiet and fewer numbers of thrushes than yesterday and the flooded field held around one hundred and fifty Lapwing.

Blackcaps still feeding in the garden, I doubt they will be leaving until the weather changes, a Sparrowhawk seen in the meadow this afternoon.

The Ferruginous Duck still present on Otmoor.
Sad to see a dead Barn Owl along the Wallingford bypass today.
