Having heard that waxwing have been seen in a local tree all week, I finally got some daylight time to go myself yesterday - no berries, no birds. I should have been there yesterday....
But not to worry, 40 were seen in Preston yesterday, so I went there today - to find only bare rowan stalks.... Ah well.
Thanks to Rick Spencer of Chorley NATS for this photo - he did get to the Chorley tree in time.
I wonder what the chances are of getting a mature rowan in the garden for Christmas...?
