Highlight of today was a male Merlin that zipped through out at Lollingdon. Appeared not to be hunting but still panicked all the birds.
Quite a few Yellowhammer, Pied Wagtail, Meadow Pipit and Linnet scattered around a couple of fields and good numbers of Fieldfare and Redwing about and only 2 Starling noted.
2 Goldcrest and 6 Reed Bunting present on the north side of the hill and the south side was all but deserted.
2 Kestrel, a Sparrowhawk and a Raven seen and 3 Mistle Thrush in the garden trees early morning.
2 late insects seen with a single Common Darter dragonfly and a Peacock butterfly.
