Sunshine and scattered cloud, 16°, light NW.

Birdwise, very little on the hill today. A pair of Yellow Wagtail nearby and the usual Corn Bunting and Yellowhammer.

Much of the same on the walk out and back as of last week.

A post breeding flock of around 30 Starling descended on the garden this afternoon, a mix of adults and young, also a Magpie briefly, both a rare occurrence in the garden but frequent in the meadow.

The Fieldfare still present in Cholsey (Tony Williams), looks as though this bird may well summer in the area.

Nuthatch still visiting the garden, may be breeding nearby, also a singing Goldcrest in the garden and a regular visit of a Sparrowhawk.

Quite a few butterflies about today: Brimstone, Large White, Green-veined White, Orange Tip, Holly Blue, Red Admiral, Small Tortoiseshell, Peacock & Speckled Wood.

No dragonflies noted as yet!
