The hill

Sunny spells, 14º, breezy SW.

Quite warm in the sunshine and generally a lot cooler than of late.

A singing Corn Bunting on Lollingdon hill today, the first one back there for a couple of months. They do not usually stay for long at this time of year.

A Raven flew overhead and another heard calling nearby, 2 Jay, 3 Pied Wagtail, a Grey Wagtail, 2 Kingfisher, 2 Chiffchaff, a Goldcrest, 3 Yellowhammer, 50+ Linnet, 60+ Meadow Pipit, 20 Skylark, a Green Woodpecker and 2 Great-spotted Woodpecker.

The pig fields in the distance had upwards of 300 gulls present and appeared mostly Lesser Blackback Gulls with a few Black-headed Gulls, a lot of Rooks, 20+ Jackdaw and a flock of c40 Starling.

2 Roe Deer and 2 Muntjac Deer seen in the area this week.

Butterflies; 6 Red Admiral.

Dragonflies; 5 Common Darter.
