I paid a brief visit to the Business Park this morning but there was not a sign of any waxwings - its really like looking for a needle in a haystack. Not even a consolation prize in the form of a fieldfare or redwing. The highlight of the trip was a trio of pied wagtails and there was a motley assortment of crows, wood pigeons and magpies. Even the ornamental lake was devoid of life - no sign of the 3 moorhens I saw the other day. Oh, well not to worry, it looks as though we are going to have a "waxwing winter" so plenty of time for more to enter the county.
There are zillions of berries and I am looking forward to further visits to see the species they will attract especially when the weather gets colder.
