Nearly there

Sunny with a few cloudy periods, 11°, light NNW.

Still northerly weather and no Wheatears yet, however a Chiffchaff on Lollingdon Hill that is probably a new arrival.

A marked decrease in the number of winter thrushes with around 100 of each Fieldfare and Redwing and 80’ish Starling.

22 Corn Bunting and 14 Yellowhammer around the hill, a couple of Meadow Pipit, 3 Pied Wagtail and c50 Linnet.

A Brimstone butterfly in the garden this morning and a Goldcrest and Green Woodpecker around.

Cholsey Marsh yesterday at dusk: 1 Common Snipe, a possible Merlin and a Barn Owl hunting and an unidentified Bat species (per Mark Bradfield).
