Not quite there yet.

High cloud and a breezy SSE wind, 11°.

A Chiffchaff singing in the garden most of the day which gave me the incentive to get out and see what was around.

Disappointingly rather little in the way of migrants:

A walk out to Lollingdon and the Lees did not live up to my expectations.

The hill was quiet with just a Kestrel, a Sparrowhawk (over) and a Buzzard on the hill and a few Red Kite overhead. A couple of Yellowhammer and 5 Corn Bunting (several in song).

A Grey Heron on the pond and a couple more Chiffchaff around, a flock of c100 Fieldfare and 3 Redwing.

A field between the Bullshole and Lollingdon was fairly active with around 40 Linnet, 20’ish Yellowhammer about the same of Chaffinch and a single Reed Bunting.

A few more Yellowhammer out by the Lees and another Kestrel and a Chiffchaff, also 2 Mistle Thrush near the church.
