12 waxwings next to Burrow Beck on Whinfell Drive Scotforth this afternoon (Saturday). They are mobile and I saw what I presume was the same group near the Boot and Shoe at about midday.

Still in the area on Sunday. A little egret was in the Beck at Hala also.

Corner of Hala Grove and Claughton Drive has a berry tree with orange/yellow berries still on it.
7 waxwings in the trees above it until a mistle thrush saw them off.

Also grey wagtail on Burrow Brook

42 waxwings in trees on the city side of Skerton Bridge (near Kingsway) mid-morning, as seen by Paul Brady.
A call from Ken Green to say a friend of his had seen c30 by PC World at around 9.30am. Presumably the same birds.

Waxwings feeding in a small rowan at the entrance of the Bathstore car park at Kingsway Retail Park, Lancaster mid afternoon.
They were flying backwards and forwards to sit up in trees by the cycle track at Skerton Bridge.

At least 36 Waxwings commuting between the tall trees just NE of Skerton Bridge and two berry trees in the nearby Farm Foods car park to 3.10 pm at least. (One of these berry trees is the just behind Pizza Hut if you are driving towards Lancaster city centre from the north, so its possible to see the Waxwings while you are stuck in the stationary traffic there!)

Thanks go to Pete Crooks for today's header photo of Aldcliffe. If you have a suitable picture of a local birding spot, why not send it to the webmaster, at andymccafferty@gmail.com? I need to resize (and if necessary crop) pictures to make them 600x130 pixels, so ideally send it at that size (definitely not smaller).
