Newmillerdam - 9 February 2017

Excellent flock of c40 waxwing in the arboretum today. Great to finally see a flock of them streaming down from the taller trees to the one tree full of berries. It will be no surprise if this is the last of the waxwings at Newmillerdam this year, as it's unlikely that there will be any berries left tomorrow.

A really good flock of 80 redwing off Wood Lane too.

Black-headed gull (163), Canada goose (30), coot (27), goldfinch (12), goosander (3 2f/1m), grey wagtail (1), kingfisher (1), lesser black-backed gull (1), mallard (249), moorhen (9), mute swan (6), nuthatch (2), pochard (2), redwing (c80), starling (11), teal (1), tufted duck (16), waxwing (c40), whooper swan (1).
