I found some of Newton Stringers Waxwing flock from yesterday on my way to school this morning. 35 were in two separate trees next to the small building at Hareside first school. I could hear more trilling from behind the construction wall next to the new part of the school but it is impossible to see from the footpath.
I looked on the ground and saw 5 more at the bottom of the tree.
They had gone by the time I walked home and I had no sign of yesterdays Peregrine or grey Wagtails. I have been told that March is one of the best months for birds in Cramlington and yesterday helped that claim.
