Lollingdon hill and the garden

Sunny spells, 17º, light WSW.

A visit to Lollingdon hill this afternoon proved quietish, five singing Corn Bunting, three Yellowhammer and two Whitethroat, two pairs of Linnet present, a Great-spotted Woodpecker  and a couple of Swallow.
Done some gardening this morning and hearing high flying Buzzard (4) displaying overhead and a couple of Red Kite over, a Whitethroat heard singing along with a Yellowhammer, Chiffchaff, Blackcap, Goldcrest and a Mistle Thrush, also a Great-spotted Woodpecker calling.

Several Swallow and House Martin feeding overhead and the usual visitors to the garden still around, Moorhen, Mallard, Stock Dove  and a brief visit from two Long-tailed Tit, and a Kingfisher flew upstream along the brook.
Other garden visitors today were Song Thrush, Carrion Crow, Blackbird, Robin, Great Tit, Blue Tit, Wren, Wood Pigeon, Collared Dove, Chaffinch, Greenfinch, Goldfinch,

Yesterday a Hobby over Cholsey hill and a Yellow Wagtail flew across the road there, also a Barn Owl still present in the parish.
