News that the lone Scout Waxwing had been joined by 18 other members of its flock warranted another visit to the Triumph factory, Hinckley to check the score for myself. In fact the score was Waxwings 23, Birders 1. Unfortunately the gloomy weather didn't do them justice so I moved on to stretch my legs on the Caldecote trail. I counted 77 Fieldfare on the meadow but little else. I looked for a Pine Bunting along the hedges but couldn't even find a Reed Bunting. No sign of any Stonechats and only a single Meadow pipit.
Waxwing, Hinckley. (taken Yesterday)
