Moon over the Marsh

Cloudy, 14°, light SSW.

Some very mild weather at the moment, very unseasonal.

Corn Bunting numbers at the roost on Cholsey Marsh are slowly increasing with around 90 in this evening, also a handful of Meadow Pipit.

A flock of approx. 80 Starling flew north and a little later a single Starling then dropped in the roost.

2 Siskin and a Chiffchaff along the river bank and a single Jay flew over.

A few Fieldfare and approx. 50 Redwing flew over.

Also a Water Rail, 2 Bullfinch and 2 Kingfisher noted and a single Cormorant flew down river.

A Merlin out at Lollingdon today (per Tony Williams) and the Whooper Swans still on Cholsey Hill (per Ralph Watts).

A Sparrowhawk flew through the garden at midday.
