5 Thrushes

Sunny and showery, 10º, light S.

Decidedly chillier the last few days!

A lot of activity in the fields to the north of Lollingdon Hill today,100+ Redwing, c30 Fieldfare, c40 Blackbird, 80+ Chaffinch, 14 Song Thrush, 3 Mistle Thrush, 1 Treecreeper, 2 Great-spotted Woodpecker and a Green Woodpecker.

Nearby 2 Goldcrest and a Chiffchaff with a Tit flock and a Grey Wagtail flew over.

The hill was also fairly active with 40+ Pied Wagtail, c20 Meadow Pipit, 100+ Linnet, 4 Corn Bunting and another Mistle Thrush.

A few Red Kite, Buzzard and a Kestrel also around.

A Sparrowhawk zipped through the garden late afternoon putting everything into a panic!
