Still a trickle

Mainly sunny with variable cloud, 20°, breezy SSE.

Still a trickle of migrants coming thru, hopefully will pick up.

A Cuckoo and 3 Lesser Whitethroat out at Lollingdon today were the best of the bunch.

4 Mute Swan flew over heading towards the village and the 2 Little Owl present.

Chiffchaff and Blackcap now seem settled and in good numbers and several Green and Great-spotted Woodpecker noted.

A pair of Lapwing in the flooded field. They bred there 2 years ago, wonder if they will try this year?

4 Corn Bunting around the hill and 6 Yellowhammer and 2 Reed Bunting around Lollingdon.

Sparrowhawk over the garden mid-afternoon and being mobbed by a Pied Wagtail and a Nuthatch and a Chiffchaff in the garden.

Mammals: Brown Hare & Roe Deer.

Butterflies: Brimstone, Orange Tip, Small Tortoiseshell and a single Peacock.
