A mix of wildlife

Mainly cloudy with sunny spells, 21°, light SW.

Very little bird wise today, even song is beginning to dwindle. 2 Swift over the hill was about it.

A Kestrel briefly in the garden this afternoon and a Great-spotted Woodpecker now a regular evening visitor, Buzzard low over the garden this evening chased off by one of the Crows.

At least 2 Cuckoo still present around Cholsey Marsh (per HW).

A Brown Hare near the hill was the only mammal today.

Dragonflies: A 4-spot Chaser still on the hill and an Emperor Dragonfly and a few Azure Damselflies on the pond.

Butterflies: Large Skipper, Brimstone, Large White, Small Tortoiseshell, Speckled Wood, Red Admiral, Meadow Brown.

A rather large Hornet also seen flying along a hedgerow.
