Cholsey Marsh 24th Jan

Overcast, 8º, light to heavy rain showers, light SW, a very dull evening!

Zero Corn Buntings at the roost this evening, somewhat early in the year for the winter roost to be over but maybe the mild weather this winter has contributed, also the water levels are substantially down on 2 weeks ago.  Will make another visit next week to check the roost again.

Around half dozen Reed Bunting present on the marsh, at least 2 Water Rail present, 2 Green Woodpecker and 5+ Common Snipe.

7 Pied Wagtail flew east over the marsh and 3 Song Thrush singing in the neighbourhood.

2 Kingfisher along the river and 2 Cormorant flew towards the 4 Arches and a couple of Mute Swan landed on the river at dusk whilst about 50 Canada Geese flew upstream.

3 House Sparrow back in the garden after not being seen for 10 days or so and the Blackcap still visiting.
