First one seen in Scotland on 20th. This is early, for any birders out there keep 'em peeled, it could be a waxwing winter. Still to see a flock of these amazing birds so will be tracking sightings of anyone else is interested.

Oh for the dosh to do some serious twitching. I sometimes turn up at a reserve find it swarming with the tick and go brigade, I like to enjoy seeing the bird properly.
A very rare visitor for us here, Rowan but have such good memories of flocks arriving in Northants. Beautiful sight.
Fieldfare have arrived though and white-tailed eagles over our estuary so that's happy making.
I've done 2 twitches in over 40yrs of birding.
A crag martin in Chesterfield and the bearded vulture in the Peak District. I met people from all over the country, even one from Lands End.
Most twitchers and toggers are very responsible, but there's always a few idiots:-(
I also twitched about 80 waxwings from my drive as they were feeding in a cotoneaster shrub in my front garden. This was a few years ago in one of the bad winters.
25 spotted in Thurso yesterday and Wednesday.

Sad that there used to be murmurations over the centre of london, the trees in Charing Cross road were the main roost.
1 seen in Knutsford, Cheshire.
Dammit - as a gardener with a phobia of birds, I shall not look forward to these illegal immigrants stripping the amazing shrub/tree in my neighbour's garden of its wonderful red berries.
As a gardener you should know that it is nature's way of distributing seed.
