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.
