A nice sunny day after the fog cleared, 10°, very light NE.

Numbers rather than diversity today out around Lollingdon.

Upwards of 3000 winter thrushes, majority were Fieldfare with approx. 10% Redwing and a few Song Thrush and Blackbird amongst them.

500+ Starling in 2 main flocks feeding with them.

200+ Black-headed Gull and 11 Lesser Blackback Gull feeing on partially flooded fields in the area.

Approx. 100 Linnet and a few Yellowhammer (with 2 in song).

Also a Kingfisher and Grey Wagtail noted.

Redpolls still present in the EastEnders garden. They have been seen every day since January 3rd. Also a Siskin there yesterday and a male Blackcap visiting for the last 5 days.

At least 2 Tawny Owl regular around the garden this week and the Blackcap and at least one Nuthatch still.
