And Hemel 66 still present too

Cycled over to see the WAXWING flock seen yesterday in Spring Way off Maylands Avenue but all the Rowans had been stripped of berries and there was no sign of the birds there. Relocated the flock in Wood Lane End opposite GO Interiors which started as a 13 flock and built up to 66 before flying off at 11: 30 am. They were feeding on Cotoneaster berries adjacent to a footpath which is lined with these berry laden shrubs for 80 metres . There are 2 tall Silver Birches they favour between feeds. I think they will be returning (Ernest Leahy)
