5th January 2011 - Northants Waxwings
An unexpected surprise today. After a day driving around Milton Keynes with no reports of Waxwings at all, it was a nice end to the day as I drove along the A45 into Northampton to noticed a large flock of birds in the bushes along the side of the dual carriageway.......and yep they were Waxwings. About 20 of them, these must have been some of the birds that I dipped on New Years Day so it was nice to finally get them. It seems that as the birds are travelling west the reports of sightings from the Milton keynes area are getting fewer and the Northants reports are coming in thick and fast showing a big movement of birds.
