Cholsey Marsh

Cloudy with frequent rain showers, 10°, breezy W.

A marked difference in numbers at the roost this evening with only 50 or so Corn Bunting coming in, a drop of over 100 on last week.

Two factors different here were the temperature being a fair bit milder today and the much windier conditions.

How these conditions have an effect I can only speculate?

30’ish Meadow Pipit and 8 Starling also in the roost.

A Cetti’s Warbler noted on the marsh, 2 Water Rail, 4 Siskin and 3 Lesser Redpoll also present.

2 Common Snipe flew over, a Sparrowhawk went through and c100 Golden Plover seen distantly over towards the village.

First Daffodil of the year in flower in the garden and a Treecreeper visiting again.
