Thanks to Neil Roberts for these shots of the Waxwings gorging on berries at Seaforth over the weekend - with many more birds to the north of us still, I think we can expect to bump into flocks foraging their way south for quite awhile yet.
Simply find some likely looking fruit-bearing trees and keep an eye on the tops of taller trees nearby, where the "Starlings in drag" will sit before swooping down to feed.
I believe there was a flock of 65 on Old Town Lane in Formby this morning, so given the number of berry bearing shrubs and trees in that neck of the woods, there's a good chance they'll pop up in Squirreltown again over the next few days.
No sign of the ones I had yesterday morning on Kenilworth Rd, Ainsdale, as I drove into work today, but I guess if you saw 'em every day, you'd get spoilt.
Birkdale dunes fairly quiet today - a few thrushes, Long Tailed Tits and the usual squealing Water Rails, but I guess it'll be quieter still tomorrow if the poo-storm the weather forecasters are promising materialises.
Eyes to the skies everyone, eyes to the skies...
