Barton-le-Clay WAXWINGS

A flock of about 20 WAXWINGS was in an Ash outsisde Barton Library then flew towards Osborn or Ramsey Road. Yesterday, I had 17 on corner of Arnold Close off Osborn, feeding on Hawthorns, whilst on 2nd eight in Ramsey Road but berries now finished there. No more records from Old Road but many berries in garden but guarded by Mistle Thrushes.

On New Years Day had EURASIAN CURLEW over Barton Hill Farm and a large diver-type bird flying over the village in the murk (Ian Kelly)
