Oil Beetle

Overcast, 12°, light SW.

Still fairly quiet out there today.

5 Chiffchaff heard singing between the village and Lollingdon, appear to be the only migrants around so far.

The hill was very quiet with just a pair of Reed Bunting that flew in and disappeared off after a brief spell.

A single Raven flew south.

Just 2 Fieldfare noted, a few Jay and several Meadow Pipit and Pied Wagtail and a couple of Yellowhammer in song.

A Barn Owl hunting over Cholsey Hill recently. Per Ben.

And a male Siskin in TW’s garden at the weekend.

There are Rooklings in the Church road Rookery!

Mammals: Roe Deer.

Insects: The first Black Oil Beetle of the year seen on the hill. 3 in total.
