At last

A sunny day, 13°, light WSW.

A Wheatear (at last) on the hill this afternoon, initially along the fence line then feeding on the slopes, also a singing Chiffchaff in the Hawthorns and a Raven flew over.

A surprise of a Ringed Plover flew north calling, certainly an oddity for the hill.

30'ish Corn Bunting, at least 1 Reed Bunting and several Yellowhammer around the hill.

Elsewhere 53 Fieldfare, 6 Redwing, 2 Siskin, several Meadow Pipit and Pied Wagtail, 2 Reed Bunting singing on the walk out and 2 more Chiffchaff.

2 Mistle Thrush, a Coal Tit and a Green Woodpecker in the meadow and the 2 Blackcap (M&F) in the garden.

4 species of Butterfly today: Brimstone, Small Tortoiseshell, Comma and Peacock.

A Cetti's Warbler on Cholsey Marsh this morning (Michael Pocock).
