Life & Death

Overcast, 15°, light NNW.

The day started off when I found a male Bullfinch unfortunately dead on the patio. It looked as though he had flown into a window.

A little later on the patio I noticed a recently fledged Great Tit perched up near a nest box that had a pair of Great Tit nesting, so looks as though at least one has fledged. No sign of them when I got back so I am assuming they have now moved on. So some success there.

Lollingdon was fairly quiet today with most summer visitors and residents that have settled down to breed. Song Thrush was the more frequent songster today with at least 5 singing en route and another 3 out at Lollingdon.

2 Lesser Whitethroat, Chiffchaff, Blackcap, Common Whitethroat, Yellowhammer and Corn Bunting also in song.

A few Swift and Swallow feeding high over the hill.

Mammals: Roe Deer, Muntjac Deer and Brown Hare.
