Busy Hill

Misty at first then clearing with cloudy skies and a light drizzly rain, 12°, light NW.

A busy Hill today with c200 Fieldfare, c40 Redwing, 80+ Starling, 23 Pied Wagtail, 14 Meadow Pipit, a female Brambling, c40 Chaffinch, 30+ Goldfinch, 80+ Linnet, 8 Yellowhammer, and singles of Reed Bunting and Corn Bunting. A definite increase in Blackbird numbers with over 100 seen. Also Tony Williams commented on higher numbers of Blackbird around Cholsey Marsh this morning.

More Song Thrush also noted with 20+ seen and a Raven flew south over the hill at 11:30.

Another flock of Pied Wagtail on the playing fields with 35 counted along with 3 Meadow Pipit and a Jay nearby.
