Sorry neil, only just seen your post. From the main road past abbey village you follow the track down about 800 metres and you come to a small brick tunnel. Look up to your right and they were in the high trees on the embankment. They then flew down to the berry bushes on both the right and left hand side of where you are walking. Let me know if they are still there. I may pay another visit as it was one of the best bird watching moments ever!!! At times I had 10-15 birds to take photos of and didn't know which to chose!!!

On the way back from Worlds End couldn't resist the 3 Waxwing at Deeside Industrial Estate, in Zone 3 goods entrance to BASF in and around a berry bearing tree, late this morning - they were taking berrys from the ground. That is the sixth consecutive month I have seen these lovely creatures.

RE: Northwich Waxwings


Fantastically close-up views of the Waxwings this morning still feeding in the apple tree on the embankment adjacent to the road bridge next to Northwich station. There were c. 40 birds at one point with some of them literally a few feet away at eye level, totally unconcerned by our presence. Also round the area were Fieldfare and Redwing.

Later a walk around Neumans Flash produced very little - and the water looked to be still completely frozen. The all-day breakfast at Sainsburys was good though biggrin.gif

25 Waxwings still in Northwich, at LA Fitness, by the Leicester Street roundabout at the top of town. The birds are very mobile commuting to Tescos car park berry trees and probably somewhere else as they go missing for long periods.

Cheers Paul
