Some interesting reptile records for 2014:
“A few amazing numbers for our site in 2014:

No of days when looked for and seen 80: Grand total of the 80 counts 426

2014 was our best year for reptiles since records began in 2000.”
“Recently while walking the circuit from Cholsey Church and beside the Bunk to Wallingford Road via Green Lane.
16 Linnets in Shepheards Garden; 10 Yellowhammers beside the next field by The Bunk; 140 Lesser Blackback Gulls overhead; and along Green Lane - 6 Mallard; 1 Common Snipe, 2 Grey Herons and 9 Teal.
Finally beside the Wallingford Road a Dog Fox just opposite the Caps Lane junction.”
Back to normal service soon, have been in Yorkshire for several days and anxious to get the Cholsey year list off to a good start! Thanks to those who have emailed me with sightings recently.
