45 Waxwings resting in 2 Sycamores by the VW dealership in Milner Street, quite good views are possible from the Northern end of B&Q's car park.

Also 6 Waxwings on top of a big beech tree in Bank Park, close to Crosfield Street and near the dilapidated visitor centre.

More I think about it the ones last night flying to roost behind the vw garage as I was passing in almost darkness could have been Starlings-so forget my earlier post

Another birder turned up as I was leaving - one of the Risley Moss regulars (Brian) I think.

Cheers Brian
