This morning Barry Weston found a flock of 26 Waxwings along the lane leading north-east from the junction of Heol Las and the B4291 (SS708996). The birds were seen to fly off west and may have been moving through. If anyone is interested to looking for the birds Barry is happy to provide more information firstname.lastname@example.org.
The black dots on the map below show the distribution of Waxwing records so far this winter. The large red dots are for the period 2000 to 2009 and the small red dots are for records prior to 2000. The red boxes show records for the BTO winter atlas.
Hopefully we can add a few more dots this winter, so please do report if you see this species. Check any berry bushes in your area, Rowan seems to be the preferred berry.
