Cholsey Marsh

Sunny, 6º, breezy SSW, chilly!

A few hours down at Cholsey marsh this afternoon and plenty of Fieldfare and Redwing around feeding in the hedgerows.

2 Sparrowhawk in the area and at least 2 Water Rail heard on the marsh and a Chiffchaff still present on the marsh.

The Corn Bunting roost was around 80 birds this evening, also a dozen Meadow Pipit and about the same of Reed Bunting coming in.

At least 6 Jay seen and heard with a couple on the marsh and the rest on the other side of the river at Little Stoke.

The Golden Plover flock still on Cholsey Hill and many Fieldfare and Redwing seen in roadside hedgerows between Cholsey, Didcot and Wallingford.

Another Sparrowhawk over the garden this morning.

Corn Buntings just prior to going to roost
 Fieldfare & a Redwing


  1. Once the domain of the dairy cattle from Fairmile now taken back by nature

  2. Before that it was an exercise area for American combat engineers building bridges just prior to D-day, before that, a grazing area for heavy horses and before that...............nature had it again!
