Overcast with very few sunny spells, 17°, fresh WSW.
A breezy day on the hill.
A steady movement of birds over the hill today with c40 Swift, 50+ Swallow, 20+ House Martin, at least 3 Sand Martin, 34 Lesser Blackback Gull, 57 Black-headed Gull and a single Curlew, all moving in a roughly southerly direction.
I wonder if these diurnal migrants are using hills as navigation markers in their migration as Wittenham Clumps, Cholsey Hill, Lollingdon Hill and Lowbury hill are in a rough north south route?
3 Kestrel on the hill, a Hobby drifted over and a few Red Kite and Buzzard present.
Nuthatch still visiting the garden.
Fewer insects around in the overcast and windy conditions.
Mammals: Muntjac Deer, Brown Hare.
Dragonflies: Brown Hawker.
Butterflies: Large White, Small White, Common Blue, Small Tortoiseshell, Comma, Speckled Wood, Gatekeeper, Meadow Brown and Ringlet.
