Friday 30th November 2012

Last day of the month and a cracking day weather wise.  Fieldfares dominated the day.  Starling numbers have built  up steadily, but there was only a smattering of Redwings.  6x Meadow Pipits were in the Concept Pear Orchard and 15+ Skylarks lifted out of the nearby stubble field.  It was good to meet up with a couple of birdwatchers on the footpath through the research site, looking like for Waxwings - nice to meet you ladies, sorry but I didn't catch your names.

One of the Manor Park County Park wardens informed me that there was a flock of 30-40 waxwings in the Broadwater Farm orchards. However a quick recce yesterday p.m. failed to relocate them.
