Deer Deer

Cloudy with sunny spells, 17°, breezy WSW.

A walk out to a windy Lollingdon this morning, the wind slowly abating through the day and getting a little warmer.

Initially greeted by 2 buck Roe Deer that ran down towards me, then realised I was there and ran off!

Most birds seemed to have settled down on territories now and not much song going on and a few juvenile Robins noted around.

2 Raven flew over the hill soared to a good height and then drifted off SW and a few Swift feeding around the hill.

The garden has been busy lately, a pair of Great Tit fledged 4 young, a pair of Blue Tit fledged 3 young and a Wren still with young in a nest.

2 Nuthatch, a female Great-spotted Woodpecker and a Coal Tit regularly visiting the garden,

A Hobby seen on Monday over the village and a Kestrel seen by the railway station yesterday.

Mammals: Roe Deer and Brown Hare.

Butterflies: not many around today, 1 Brimstone, a few Green-veined White, 2 Red Admiral, 2 Small Tortoiseshell, several Speckled Wood and 3 Meadow Brown.

A Mistle Thrush sun bathing.
Speckled Wood
Poplar Grey ?
Not wildlife but an iconic train photographed as it passed through Cholsey station yesterday. The Flying Scotsman.
