Don’t hold your breath but spring may be here.

Sunny, 10º, light N, still chilly out of the sun.

A couple of hours on Lollingdon hill produced at least one surprise of a Redshank that flew over calling. Where did that come from?
Five Wheatear (3, 2) present feeding on the hill with one of the ♀’s there flycatching (flycatcher style) quite frequently.

A single Fieldfare on the hill feeding with a small flock of seven Starling, three Meadow Pipit and a flock of twenty plus Starling flew west.
Two Yellowhammer and two Corn Bunting also present in the hedgerow and two Chiffchaff seen, one in either hedgerow (east and west).

A Peacock and a Small Tortoiseshell Butterfly both noted.
Great-spotted Woodpecker and Blackcap still visiting garden.
