A waxwing has just visited our garden - the first since November 4, 2010 when we had crowds of them on the cotoneaster bush. All the berries have already been taken by the blackbird, so I doubt the waxwing will be hanging about, but there are bound to be others in the region. Any other sightings?

Oh my... how lovely for you Mike. Hopefully the start of an influx - it's a while since I've seen any.

Delia, Glad to be here. The waxwing comes at the end of a week that has seen goldfinches and redwings arrive, so it has been a colourful few days.
