Sparrows back

Cloudy and showery, 12º, light to moderate SSE.

A couple of hours out and about around the Lollingdon area today.
Scattered flocks of thrushes with around 300 Fieldfare, 50’ish Redwing, c30 Blackbird and 5 Song Thrush in total. Quite a few finches flying with the thrushes, all I could pick out though were Chaffinch and Goldfinch!

2 Goldcrest, a single Chiffchaff, a Jay and 5 Corn Bunting flew over. The hill was very quiet apart from the usual Linnet flock and 32 Starling flew over towards the pig fields.

A Great-spotted Woodpecker visiting the garden and 4 House Sparrow back after a few months absent.

  1. Up to 6 permanently in our garden for the past 2 weeks too, having previously been very rare. RB
