Oxhey WAXWING bonanza continues
After learning that about 100 WAXWINGS were still in Bucks Avenue I decided to walk there and discovered that there were still around 200 but they soon became restless and small flocks flew off and back. Got picked up by my husband for a needed shopping trip to Watford and discovered around 100 in a tree near Bushey Arches. Coming out of Comet I saw more Waxwings flying overhead trilling away heading towards Watford Heath. Coming back from Tesco's supermarket (no Waxwings there ) presumably the same flock of around 100 perched in at all tree near B & Q. A quick diversion via Bucks Avenue saw no sign of them and no more sightings on the way home (JT).
