Wheatears

Overcast, 3º, light to moderate NE, at least the birdbath was liquid today!

A brief visit to Lollingdon hill today produced my first Wheatear with three present and struggling to find any insect food. One Wheatear was noted systematically dissecting some sheep droppings, presumably looking for insect larvae and seemed successful.
Tony Williams was on the hill this morning and no Wheatear present so they must have just arrived this afternoon!

A Buzzard present, eight Starling flew over and a distant flock of around one hundred and fifty Lapwing flew towards the downs.
A lot of gulls in the pig fields but too distant for ID.

Brian Wyatt had three Raven in Cholsey yesterday.
