Damp start to flaming June!

Overcast with light rain, 15°, light N.

A rather damp visit to Cholsey Marsh this morning.

However a Cuckoo seen to fly from the marsh across the river, not calling this morning while I was there but heard by a dog walker earlier.

Song was a little subdued on the marsh but good numbers of Sedge Warbler present, also Reed Warbler, Chiffchaff, Blackcap, Common Whitethroat, 1 Garden Warbler & 1 Lesser Whitethroat and a Cetti’s Warbler.

At least a dozen singing Reed Bunting present on the marsh, a pair of Bullfinch noted and a Great-spotted Woodpecker nest with at least 2 young in and a Water Rail heard.

Several Song Thrush in song and a Mistle Thrush briefly.

A few Swift, Swallow and House Martin feeding overhead.

A few visits by a Sparrowhawk in the garden this morning.
