Delighted to spot a single WAXWING atop a tree in a neighbours garden earlier this morning, then heading out to investigate further found a modest flock of 10+ birds between Silver End and Northwood End.

Further excitement as on trying to follow the Waxwings down North Lane found 2 TREE SPARROWS in a cottage garden.

Three Bramblings regularly feeding in my garden now - started with just 1 at the outset of the cold weather (Christine)
