Waxwing flew in at 0830. Sat in tree close to berries, spending most of its time preening and looking around.

Single Waxwing still showing very well today, and still there when I left at 14:45. In the same place as previously mentioned below.
Nice to meet Rob Smallwood, and quite a number of interested local people.

The single Waxwing again this morning in the same location and showing well as I left at 11.30.  It is mobile at times and doesn't stay long on the yellow berries.

Yes indeed! Much better light today but it didn't linger long on the berries.

The Waxwing was still there late afternoon in fading light and heavy snow cry It stayed right at the top of a large tree at the Dickens Lane/Vernon Road junction and never came down for me. The light was attrocious and it was high up but as John says they are incredibly thin on the ground so far this winter so any view was better than  none (record piccy taken with my phone hand-held attached).

A single Waxwing feeding this afternoon on yellow berry trees near the corner of Dickens Lane and Vernon Road. They are a bit thin on the ground this winter.

Cheers, John

Assume you know of the hide overlooking the river Phil? If not over the weir bridge - take the left road by the side of pool, and at the end there is a gate with a rope over the post (nature reserve) Just go through the gate and the path will lead you to the hide.

Sue and I are popping down to see it tomorrow. It would be nice to see it in our county, but as we've never seen one before anyway, we've decided to go. Perhaps we'll try to shoo it northwards! Will probably make a day of it and pop to Etherow CP whilst down there.

Did you have "the camera you can no longer get"? If so we did meet, but the other "Rob" was in the four that left. My friend is a BTO man and in the High Peak Group if that helps you place him. He is "the expert" in the "we three"smile.gif

Must think of somewhere for us to go tomorrow

I turned up at just as the 4 left and recognised at least one of the four but couldn't place him - so I suspect we did meet - I was trying to digi-scope the bird.

Will the other (real) Rob please stand up, please stand up?

When we arrived about 12.15 ish, there were about 6 already there - at least 4 scopes. I asked if anyone posted on this site, and one guy pointed me to another. I shook hands with him - sure he said he was Rob. Anyway, I was the little guy with a green cap. My friend had a beard.

Geoff - I'm not sure that it was me that you met - I did meet two gents and a lady from Wilmslow, but I never introduced myself, nor did they.

You may have met someone else!

Still there today - hadn't realised the border was so close!

Two of "we three" went to (I think it was" New Home Farm - lane on left just before Jacksons Brick Works) this morning to see a Cattle Egret. Jolly good, we saw it follow the cattle and fly. Also saw a Buzzard, Two Kestrel and a few Mistle Thrush.

Also met a fellow poster - Rod or Ron
