Wet & Soggy

Rain, 3°, light wind. A wet and soggy day.

A rather damp walk around Lollingdon today.

Not a great deal noted but 50+ Pied Wagtail and over 50 Meadow Pipit out with the sheep on the hill.

A flock of Lapwing still around by the pig fields and c200 gull present.

A Sparrowhawk, 3 Corn Bunting and 2 Yellowhammer noted.

On Sunday beside the Green Lane linking The Bunk railway with Wallingford Road there were 100 Fieldfare in one field and a Raven (per TR).

And a Little Egret fishing today in Cholsey brook along the first cow field just north of the bridge (per RB).
Over the weekend a Buzzard appeared briefly in the trees in the garden, a Grey Heron, Green Woodpecker and Sparrowhawk in the meadow.

The Moorhens have been exhibiting territorial behaviour and have been aggressive to a third individual present and the pair were mating in the garden this morning.
A couple of Long-tailed tit and a Coal Tit in the garden also.
