Quiet out West

Low cloud, 11º, light drizzle, light S then breezy.

Lollingdon hill rather quiet apart from 5 Red Kite and 2 Buzzard soaring overhead in the moderate breeze from the south, also a Kestrel hunting over the hill.
The usual large flock of Gulls out by the pig fields and around 200 Lapwing still in the area.

A scattering of thrushes around that included Fieldfare, Redwing, Song Thrush, Mistle Thrush and Blackbird.
A Peregrine Falcon resting on a pylon out by the Lees and a Sparrowhawk flew through.

A flock of around 100 Golden Plover still on Cholsey hill.
Other species noted were Grey Heron, Meadow Pipit, Skylark, Reed Bunting, and Pied Wagtail.

A House Sparrow visiting the rear garden today and a Grey Wagtail along the brook.
A few Roe Deer seen today also.

The House Sparrow amongst others on the feeders
