A pleasant walk

Sunny spells, 20º, breezy WNW.

A pleasant walk out west today but quiet, Chiffchaff and Blackcap still singing well but otherwise fairly quiet, the “acros” along the reedy stream were generally quiet but a few seen carrying food so hopefully quite a few young soon to be seen and three sites with singing Goldcrest.
Three young Song Thrush seen near Lollingdon hill and a flock of around a dozen Long-tailed Tit.

Other species noted were Hobby, Sparrowhawk, Grey Partridge, Yellow Wagtail (2 areas), Mistle Thrush, Green and Great-spotted Woodpecker and the three Bunting species.
Around twenty five Swift feeding over Cholsey Church area.

A lot of Small Tortoiseshell butterflies today and Speckled Wood and Meadow Brown but only one White (large).
