No Waxwings today

                                              Waxwing food


                                            Yesterdays Waxwings
 Another bright icy cold day but slightly cloudier with a half decent forecast for the weekend which should get stuff moving around now.
No signs of Waxwings at Foxhill today but plenty berries that they were feeding on yesterday if anyone can i.d. them from the not so good photos.
Nothing else doing today though plenty resident birds about frantically feeding ready for another cold night.
Yet another report today from the old Queensbury railway station with 3 Woodcocks being seen from the new cycle track there. All say the same that these birds look new in and tired as they only fly a few yards away.

Thanks Jim, thats what I suspected but was,nt sure.
The Waxwings were feeding well on them but were very nervy being so low down.

Yes Cotoneaster - Royal Horticultural Society list many species from creeping species to quite large shrubs, even small trees, mostly all berry bearing and many varieties popular as garden plants.
