Just after mid-day I decided to nip over to Hartlebury to see if there was any sign of the Waxwings. They are certainly coming and going at this site with them disappearing for a while and then returning.
On pulling up near their favoured Rowan trees on the trading estate I initially picked up 2 Waxwings feeding on the berries. Before long they were joined by 10 more Waxwings that dropped into the adjacent taller trees. I then enjoyed these for a good while at a respectable distance and I even managed to get a bit more video footage.
Also present in this area of trees were 2 Redwing, 5 Fieldfares and 6 Blackbirds. A Pied Wagtail was flitting around on the roof of a nearby unit.
Whilst enjoying the Waxwings I was treated to another treat in the form of a flock of 9 Golden Plover that flew over in a skein like formation heading South.
Later, I was joined by Dave (http://davepowner.blogspot.co.uk/), Phil (http://philmumby.blogspot.co.uk/) and a couple of their collegues after I had texted Dave to let them know the Waxies were showing well. Needless to say a good old natter ensued!
