Waxwings and Great Grey Shrike

After an initial sighting of a single Waxwing at Burnley cemetry this morning, we finally caught up with a large flock at Barrow near Clitheroe. This morning there were about 70 birds in the village, but by this afternoon the flock had grown to at least 108 birds, some of which were very obliging. In between our two visits to see these wonderful birds, we called in at nearby Waddington Fell and had good views of a Great Grey Shrike.

Leighton Moss

We had an excellent day at Leighton Moss. A pair of Bearded Tits showed well on the grit trays from the public causeway, and a Cetti's Warbler sang nearby, whilst at the Eric Morecombe hide there was a superb Great White Egret, along with several Little Egrets, 10 Greenshank and five Red-breasted Mergansers.
