West again

Sunny, 24º, light SW.

A warm sunny day and a walk out to Lollingdon.

The pair of Lapwing and young still present and a pair of Yellow Wagtail close by.

At least 3 Green Woodpecker (young) present and calling to each other, also several Song Thrush, a Grey Heron and 2 Grey Partridge plus all the regulars.

The hill was quiet but overhead was busy with 13 Red Kite, 2 Buzzard and a Kestrel soaring and 5 Raven flew over north.

A singing Willow Warbler by the Bullshole and at least a couple of Bullfinch present.

Coal Tit in the garden again and a Song Thrush collecting food. 

Cuckoo frequenting the river area between Cholsey marsh and the 4 Arches and a Hobby regular over the village, also looks a good year for Reed Warbler with at least 15 singing males in the parish (per TW & PC).

Butterflies: Small Tortoiseshell and Speckled Wood abundant today with a few Brimstone, a Peacock and a Red Admiral.
