Frosty

Hazy sunshine, warming up, 10°+, light W.

A walk out to the hill this morning with a ground frost still on the grass but slowly warming up.

2 Jay in the Millennium Wood, 2 Grey Wagtail on the brook near the railway and several Yellowhammer half way out.

Roughly 500 Fieldfare around the hill today feeding on Hawthorn berries, a handful of Redwing, 5 Mistle Thrush, c80 Starling and a definite increase in Blackbird numbers with 50+ noted and 3 Song Thrush.

A Corn Bunting, several Yellowhammer, 6 Goldcrest and 2 Bullfinch also on the hill.

2 Kestrel, a Sparrowhawk and a flock of approx. 100 Linnet.

A walk out by the Lees did not produce a lot other than 2 Reed Bunting, 2 Jay, and several Skylark and Meadow Pipit.

Amphibians: Common Frog (on the allotments yesterday).

Dragonflies; 2 Common Darter.

Butterflies: 5 Red Admiral.
