More Stonechats

A cloudy and wet day after a bright start, 5°, breezy WSW.

A bit cooler today and somewhat quiet on the bird front. Very few “winter thrushes” noted today with just a handful of Fieldfare and 20+ Redwing.

A slight increase in Song Thrush sightings and a single singing Mistle Thrush.

However a nice surprise to find 5 Stonechat on Lollingdon Hill today with 3 male and 2 female seen. Could not get close enough for any decent photos and they appeared to move off the hill after about 10 minutes.

A couple of Fieldfare, 6 Pied Wagtail and 2 Meadow Pipit also on the hill.

A lot of Red Kite and Buzzard in the air this morning with excess of 30 Kite and 16 Buzzard counted on the walk out.

c30 Lapwing flew over the garden early morning heading north.
