We passed the well reported flock of waxwings on Manchester Road on the way over the Snake Pass on Tuesday so the following day I joined other enthusiasts at Crosspool. A flock of 16 was feeding on rowan berries when I arrived. In the afternoon and the following day more joined them. Redwings were also feeding and a Mistle Thrush roosted.
At Endcliffe Park the female Kingfisher fished and a male arrived.
Scooter, the resident elderly feline, sleeps in our room and when her food dish is empty, walks over us until the house slave fills it up (she has a thyroid condition and eats voraciously).
