Wheatear & Stonechats

Sunny, 20°, light NNE.

The first Stonechat of the autumn on the hill today but disappeared down the NW side of the hill, a Wheatear also present for a brief time. A Blackcap and several Chiffchaff, 2 Reed Bunting and 3 Yellowhammer also on the hill and a few Meadow Pipit overhead.

A single Swallow flew south over the hill and a single House Martin over Church road.

Another Stonechat found by Alan this afternoon along the Lollingdon track.

2 Herring Gull with a flock of Lesser Blackback Gull in a nearby field and still 100’s of Gulls around the pig fields along with many Corvids and a few small flocks of Starling.

Dragonflies: Common Darter.

Butterflies: Large White, Small White, Red Admiral, Comma & Speckled Wood and a Small Copper found by Alan.
