Nuthatch alarm call

Woken this morning by some tapping outside the bedroom window and on checking saw a Nuthatch pecking away at something in the guttering. Not sure what it was after but managed to get a few pics.

Cloudy with a few sunny periods, 18°, light NE.

A walk out to Lollingdon later in the morning and greeted by 3 Raven flying north over the hill.

Also present were a Green Woodpecker, several Corn Bunting, 2 Reed Bunting, several Yellowhammer, 2 Yellow Wagtail, several Common Whitethroat, Blackcap and Chiffchaff and a Lesser Whitethroat.

A few Swift and Swallow feeding overhead.

The Fieldfare has not been seen since Fri 20th May.

Cetti’s Warbler still on Cholsey Marsh (Paul Rainsden & Tony Williams) and a Lesser Whitethroat. Also a Peregrine Falcon along Westfield rd. (TW).

Approx 22:30 tonight a flock of c30 Jackdaw flew in from the direction of the village and settled in the rookery, presumably to roost.

Mammals: Roe Deer, Muntjac Deer and a Brown Hare.

Butterflies: Brimstone, Orange Tip, Green-veined White, Small WhiteHolly Blue, Common Blue, Red Admiral, Peacock, Small Tortoiseshell and Speckled Wood.
