Found 20 or so Waxwings in a local village today. They were descending to feed in a cotoneaster which surprisingly was still laden with berries. Good to see and hear these beautiful birds again. The last I saw in this area were in Helmsley on 13th December 2010. After this time most migrated south out of the area. I have been expecting to see them on their return journey. The next month or so could well see good numbers passing back through the area as they prepare to cross the North sea on their journey back to the remote forests in which they breed.
