First Redwing

Misty light cloud, 18°, very light SSW.

Our first Redwing of the autumn today along Cholsey brook by Church road. Per Richard Broughton.

Not a lot on the hill today, around 5 each of Yellowhammer and Reed Bunting and a single Corn Bunting in song. A Sparrowhawk dropped in for a few minutes and then soared off joining 2 Buzzard and 5 Red Kite thermalling over the hill.

3 Chiffchaff noted with one in song but little else.

Nuthatch and Grey Wagtail in the garden.

Butterflies: 1 Large White.
