A Jay Day

On my travels today along with the usual Kites and Buzzards I saw, at various places four Jays flying across the road. After work I managed an hour or so of birding which was better than I have managed over the last few days. Building work almost finished now so hopefully back to normal soon. First call was Wroughton Reservoir where with some difficulty I counted a dozen Little Grebes. They just don’t seem able to stay on the surface for more than a few seconds at a time. Also here were the usual supporting cast along with a Great Spot calling from the trees. On the edge of the airfield was a flock of at least three hundred Fieldfares, a couple of Kestrels and three Buzzards. Around Barbury Castle Corn Bunting, Meadow Pipit, Linnet, Chaffinch and House Sparrow were seen. A little later leaving Morrisons I could hear a large amount of House Sparrows. I located them across the road in a small clump of bushes. Only a handful were seen but it sounded like there were a good few in there.
