An Autumnal day

Mainly cloudy, 17°, breezy W.

A flock of 25 Mistle Thrush flew on to the hill this morning but stopped only briefly before heading north over the top.

The Bunting flock still present on the hill in roughly the same numbers as yesterday.

Quite a few Skylark and Meadow Pipit around but no obvious movement going on.

A single Raven flew east and 5 Chiffchaff noted between the village and Lollingdon.

Dragonflies: 5 Common Darter.

Butterflies: singles of Large White, Red Admiral and Comma. And a Speckled Wood in the garden.

TW & PD were on the downs yesterday (not far from Lollingdon) and found 4 Clouded Yellow, several Small Copper and Common Blue.
