9 January 2009

The Brambling count at East Malling gets ever higher - probably cos Adam and I are looking harder and harder. Dunno how many we saw today but conservative estimates could 20-30+. I'll try and start ringing them this weekend to get a fuller picture of numbers.

Adam mentioned an unconfirmed report of a Waxwing on site - the first for several years. On returning back to my office, sure enough one Waxwing readily located along the road, in the top of a tree. The bird was then disturbed by walkers and couldn't be relocated, but is there somewhere....

Later I went back to try and take a picture while Adam wasn't around - only to find Adam, attempting exactly the same thing, and no Waxwing!
