A bit of a mixed bag today and rather wet and muddy out to Lollingdon.
A flooded field had c100 Black-headed Gull, c20 Lesser Blackback Gull, c50 Lapwing, 14 Teal and 4 Mallard present.
3 more Teal and 2 Mallard on Amwell Spring.
A Little Owl nearby being mobbed by Blackbirds and Chaffinches and a Stonechat on the north side of the hill briefly before being chased off by a Robin and not re-found.
A Redshank flew over heading north.
Good numbers of Winter Thrushes (Fieldfare & Redwing) around and seemed to be concentrated in tree tops today with a lot of chattering going on. Usually a precursor to migration.
A few species in full or partial song today, notably Mistle Thrush, Song Thrush, Yellowhammer and Treecreeper and a couple of Blackcap in the village recently in full song.
Mammals: Several Roe Deer.
