Garden tick

Sunny, 20º, light winds.

Arrived back from Oxford just after lunch time and decided to sit in the garden and enjoy the sun, after a couple of minutes I became aware of a Sedge Warbler singing, walked to the other end of the garden and one was singing along the brook that runs alongside. The first time I recall one there as it is a busy area with a footpath one side and a school the other.
Later I decided on a walk out to Lollingdon, relatively quiet but approx six Blackcap in song, a Goldcrest and a pair of Yellow Wagtail near the hill, three Black-headed Gull flew north over the hill and another Sedge Warbler singing along one of the streams that runs through Lollingdon.

Whitethroat, Chiffchaff, Linnet, Yellowhammer, Corn Bunting and Reed Bunting noted also.
Again five butterfly species noted and quite a few Small Red Damselflies.
