Redwings

A cloudy day, 16°, light to breezy SW.

Lots of Redwing out at Lollingdon today with around 100 birds present and feeding on Yew berries. They had moved on by the time I came off the hill.

Also dozens of Redwing along Cholsey Brook area this morning and a Little Egret present again. Per RB.

The hill was fairly quiet with just 2 Mistle Thrush seen by TW earlier.

A few Yellowhammer and Reed Bunting still present around the hill and 2 Corn Bunting.

A flock of c40 Yellowhammer out at Little Lollingdon around the stubble fields.

2 Nuthatch have been visiting the garden on a regular basis recently and have also been seen the other side of Church road in a garden. Per RB.

Dragonflies: 1 Southern Hawker and 1 Common Darter.
