The last Waxwing?

March 10, 2024 at 9:01 pm

This weeks photos are of a small group of Waxwings in Burnley a month  ago.We were told that this winter was going to be a big waxwing Winter but while some parts of the country have had a lot , in Greater Manchester have had very few. For four months I have checked a berry laden Rowan tree in Middleton, every other day, only to have had every berry eaten by a pair of Mistle Thrushes. As I waited forty years to see my first Waxwing will I still be around when they return? I wish I was an optimist!!
