A walk out to Lollingdon with a group from the Abingdon Naturalist Society, Tony Rayner accompanied us part of the way. Not a great deal seen today but 3 Common Redstart on the hill that showed reasonably well and another calling from a hedge to the west of the hill.
Just 1 Chiffchaff noted, 2 Kestrel and a small passage of mainly Swallow and a Few House Martin and Swift.
A Kingfisher seen by a few along Cholsey brook.
I hope everyone enjoyed the walk and the Redstarts.
2 Green Sandpiper on the pond out at Lollingdon @ 10:00 (per Tony Williams).
The Moorhen visited the garden with its young this afternoon.
Dragonflies: 2 Common Darter this morning and a Southern Hawker in the garden this afternoon.
Butterflies: few noted in the overcast conditions: Large and Small White, a tatty looking Painted Lady, Small Tortoiseshell, Speckled Wood and a Meadow Brown. Later in the garden as it brightened up there was, Small Tortoiseshell, Red Admiral, Meadow Brown and Gatekeeper, a Holly Blue seen by Loren on the allotments.
I was too busy talking today and only took a photo of a Kestrel, so some from the garden later.
