As many (if not all) of you know, Waxwings are once again gracing us with thier presence this winter, and thier numbers look as if they will increase over the coming weeks/months (should the berry crop hold out?). So far in Monts they have been seen at:
30+ (several obs) feeding on berries on and around the college, plus another 40+ (via Phil) seen flying over.
31(via birdguides) by The Flash Leisure Centre at c.SJ224075 mid-afternoon.
Flock (via Edward) seen flying south towards Newtown.
No doubt there are several other flocks around, it's just a matter of finding them. Other places worth checking out are Tregynon, Llanfyllin, Montgomery, Pwll Penarth, Garthmyl, Llanidloes, Castle Caereinion, Pool Quay and Llanermynech as they have all had previous sitings of Waxwings over the years, or just anywhere where there are berries!
If anyone does find some Waxwings and wants to put the news on the blog but cant, please don't hesitate to contact me, and I'll try my best ot put the news out.
