Lodge ARCTIC REDPOLL still present

The elusive first-winter SCANDINAVIAN ARCTIC REDPOLL at The Lodge was seen briefly again today by Mark Ward. It was in a flock of c.120 redpolls by the hide late afternoon. There was another flock of 250-300 redpolls on the old heath. Also 17 Waxwings headed south over the Sandy Ridge Trail at around 4pm (per Steve Blain)
