Queensbury berries

           No shortage of berries  in the Baptist church graveyard


                       Most Holly berries are the yellow kind.

Another day of wind and rain improving slightly p.m.
A snoop around the Chapel Lane graveyard at lunchtime found good supplies of berries, not sure what the red ones are but the local Blackbird seems to enjoy them. The Holly is also in full berry but have never seen a Waxwing in a Holly bush, has anyone else ?
Plenty small gulls over the park at midday with about 42 present but very high and soaring excitedly and noisy as also described by NK yesterday.
No local Waxwing reports today so far.

Hi Brian. I Wish Waxwings would visit those trees!

Didn't get chance to go to B&Q today but will try tomorrow and see if any are present.

Just see how its fixed for berry trees when you go, its usually a good spot although tomorrow is forecast for gale force winds and rain.
Hope Mark got your tree planted.

I will do. Was planning on trying to nip down mid-morning before the bad weather hits. We will see.

He is planting the tree tomorrow although it might be best to wait if the gale force winds are coming.

Not seen Waxwings in holly Bri but they are favourites for Redwings. In Lee Mount and especially Shroggs Park they also like roosting in them.
Not sure what those berries are, thought at first they were Mountain Ash but the leaves look more like a Cotoneaster species, must try have a look as its looks a very good berry species.
