I haven't noticed any reports of waxwings locally for a few days. Maybe everyone is getting blase about them.
But they'll be off soon, back to Scandinavia.
It really has been an exceptional waxwing winter - they arrived quite early and very abundantly - and then they were almost everywhere. It's difficult to know, but I'd be surprised if we get another waxwing winter like this one for at least a decade. I may not see one again in Northamptonshire for ages.
Birdtrack is showing that the numbers seem to be dropping off.
hi there! I was delighted to see a flock of waxwings - maybe 60 of them - feeding on berries in Bournemouth on saturday the 26th of march, in the afternoon!
