Still around

I’m not sure if the novelty of Waxwings has worn off yet or if they have generally moved on but there seems to be fewer reports of these colourful Scandinavians in the county of late.
Anyway whilst walking back from Manor Walks this afternoon nine Waxwings were in the tree tops of a garden half way along Needham Place on the Shanklea estate. They were dropping down into the garden so there could have been more than just nine. They could be part of the 70+ Beaconhill flock from the other week as this part of the estate doesn’t get much foot traffic or passing cars so they may have been here for a while.
