Plenty of WAXWINGS still on offer

Still 51+ Waxwings in the car park of Beds Growers, along the road between Biggleswade and Potton this lunchtime (Steve Blain/Mark Ward)

08:50 21/02/11 Waxwing Beds Luton 08:30 40 at Freeman Avenue on cotoneaster, opposite access road to chip shop and car park (per Steve Blain)

Didnt see them on Saturday but yesterday there were 24 on the Cotoneasters opposite the chemist in Barton-le-Clay and the same number this mornig seen at 09.00 and again at 12.30. Main resting perch seems to be the tall trees on corner of Manor Road and Lime Close. Also perch on nearby TV aerials and phone lines. Sometimes are feeding on other tree nearer to Manor Road but this almost depleted of berries (Ian Kelly)

28 behind Ford showroom near doctors surgery in Shefford late morning (Andy Plumb)
