    Excellent. A flight of 16 birds flew overhead going East towards the Park or the Cemetery near sunset yesterday. I saw nothing today as was away early and back at dusk but nice to know they are still around…. As far as I’m aware all the rowan in the Cathedral area, Storeys, Ridge Lane etc and the Edward Street car parks has already been stripped. If there is a big influx of waxwing because of the Scandinavian weather (which is quite brutal at the moment), the Ridge estate is well planted with service trees which are all well fruited and have been secondary sources for waxwings in late winter before. Well worth checking these if this flock disappears from Freehold.
