I've been keeping everything crossed for Waxwings, every flock of Starling sized birds gets my hopes up but nothing yet, still several hundred in local area.
on the subject of Fieldfares have had a very good flock in fields next to where I work for a few days & no idea what they're eating, the field where they spent most of the afternoon is only occaisonally used for grazing sheep.
In other years they've been in old orchard, but last autumn I discovered too late that someone decided to take all the windfalls to feed to their pig
, they used to attract good numbers of Fieldfare and Redwing.
will be putting a stop to that next year.
