Late this afternoon I heard a Corn Bunting, not unusual around Chiseldon I know but this one was at the back of my house in an Elder Bush in a neighbours garden. Not the usual place for one of these. It was singing on and off for a couple of minutes before it flew off across the village.
This evening we went for a drive to Lechlade for a drink at the Trout Inn. There were plenty of Swallows and House Martins over the river along with a few Swifts. After a drink we had a walk along the river towards Lechlade. Two Grey Wagtails were at St Johns Lock and a Common Tern was patrolling along the river. A small flock of Canada Geese contained two neck marked birds but without binoculars I wasn’t able to read the codes.
