Lollingdon 25th Sep

Sunny, 16°, light NW.

A Stonechat on the hill today not seen first time around but appeared later in the afternoon, a Wheatear in fields to the west and 5 Yellowhammer on the hill.

50+ Hirundines over with a 50/50 mix of Swallow and House Martin and a passage of Pied Wagtail (20) and Meadow Pipit (42) also 2 Siskin flew over, all moving south.

4 Sparrowhawk sightings of at least 3 birds and quite a few Buzzard in the air today.

The wooded side had 2 flocks of Tits pass through, the first around 20 birds and the second of around 50. The majority of birds were as usual Long-tailed Tit with several Great and Blue Tit. However the second had 3+ Coal Tit and at least 1 Marsh Tit and both flocks had Goldcrest and Chiffchaff with them. A total of 14 Chiffchaff around the hill today.

A walk out to the Lees proved rather fruitless with just a few Skylark, Reed Bunting and Yellowhammer noted.

2 Nuthatch, 2 Coal Tit and a Chiffchaff around the garden today.

Mammals: Roe Deer, Muntjac Deer and Red Fox.

Dragonflies: Southern Hawker and Common Darter.

Butterflies: 1 Brimstone, Large White, Small White, Small Tortoiseshell, 2 Red Admiral and Comma.
