A flock of 30 were in the trees at the bottom of the bus station in Halifax this afternoon between at least 15:15 and 16:00. Very few berries left in the single rowan so I was surprised they were still there.
1 Waxwing from Lane Head area, Brighouse mid morning but it sounds like the berries are getting sparse there too. (AC).
10 Bramblings also reported by Sarah today in the area of Stansfield Close, Hanson Lane.
Photo's of Waxwings below from JM.
Worth taking note of the second photo showing the under-wing and what I think must be the wax tips showing as extension like streamers from the secondaries. Never noticed that before but I guess they may only show up like that on a photo (?)
What fantastic birds they are. No wonder everyone want's to see them !
