I took a quick lunchtime stroll today and finally tracked down the local WAXWING flock - 37 were present between 13.20 and 13.40 in Applecroft Road. The birds were mostly in the tall trees on the opposite side of the road to the school, occasionally swooping down to feed on berries on the trees in front of the school classrooms. There were plently of berries, so although the birds flew off at 13.40 they are likely to return.
Please be aware of and sensitive to the fact that Applecroft School has a strict 'No Photography' policy (as recently highlighted in The Daily Mail!!). I managed a couple of discrete, distant, and consequently very poor photos myself! (Anthony Dorman)
