... and continue with Worcestershire.
i've never seen a waxwing before and there are none in sheffield at the moment. I stumbled accross your blog hopeing to find that they were in Leicester. nevermind! lol
I'm sure they will be everywhere before too long! There have been a few in north-west Leicestershire already, but none have hung around so far. Sheffield has a good track record of attracting them in big invasion years, as does Nottingham.
hi again, i'm visiting my parents in leicester this weekend ( (south) near market harborough ) wondering if you could recommend the best birding spot nearby that i might get a chance to see something interesting? is saddington reservior worth a trip or am i best sticking with the likes of swithland, charnwood, bradgate etc?thank you. Loving the blog btw. great stuff to see birding with a good sense of humour. ads x
South Leicestershire is a bit of a birding desert - Saddington Res occasionally has interesting birds, but it only takes about 10 minutes to see everything there as it's tiny. If you can go a bit further afield, Eyebrook Res is a much better bet, or of course there's Rutland Water.Check out the LROS website - there's a link to the Latest Bird News page under 'Other Good Stuff' on the right hand side of this blog - and have a look at the Birding Sites section.
just seen my first flock of waxwings gorging on my rose hip berries been here since early morning (fri.28 01.11) do keep getting disturbed,but have returned. close up veiw from my bath room window.
