Overcast, 20º, light SE (rain earlier).

A couple of hours around Lollingdon today turned up 7 Chiffchaff with one briefly in song and at last another migrant warbler in a male Blackcap.
 7 Magpie again ranging widely around the hill, 4 Yellowhammer, 3 Meadow Pipit, 2 Linnet, 3 Grey Partridge, 1 Reed Bunting, a couple of Robins in song and overhead 500+ Hirundines passed through, the majority being Swallows and the rest House Martins, One flock consisted of over 100 birds.

A confrontation between a Cat and a Pheasant saw a bit of a standoff and a distant Buzzard being mobbed by a Carrion Crow.
A couple of other Buzzard, 2 Kestrel and plenty of Gulls around.
