Steve Thompson had the 16 WAXWINGS still at John O'Gaunt's Golf Course this morning )see photo above), whilst Steve Rooke and others had the 5 in Sunderland Road, Sandy, again. Mark Telfer heard 2 in Eaton Bray.

Meanwhile, Richard Bashford may have had a DIPPER at Harrold - if so, constituting the first record in over 40 years.
