Wet 'n' Windy

Overcast, steady rain, 11°, fresh SSW.

A rather damp walk out to Lollingdon today with little being noted.

The south face of the hill was exposed to the wind and rain and subsequently there was little there except for a single Mistle Thrush.

A scattering of Fieldfare and Redwing with the only decent flock of c40 Redwing and a dozen Fieldfare by Amwell spring, also 2 Grey Wagtail and a single Corn Bunting noted there.

Quite a few Blackbird still present in the area, 3 Song Thrush and around 20 Meadow Pipit seen and a single Green Woodpecker.

100+ Golden Plover on Cholsey hill over the weekend and the Blackcap still present in the garden.

A small Starling roost noted close to the centre of the village over this winter, probably no more than 50 birds but is used regularly.
