Another Waxwing was reported today, this one was outside Dunelm during the morning, obviously doing a bit of last minute Christmas shopping. I challenge it to spend more in store than my wife!!!!
The young Red-throated Diver was still on Peasholm Park Lake today but there are concerns being raised as to its state of health and ability to consume food.
The Black Redstart in the council depot at Dean Road was seen again today.
At Potter Brompton Carr there were 9 White-fronted Geese that were flushed by an aircraft at 12.45 but returned to the site just 15 minutes later.
Also today a Black-throated Diver was seen at Wykeham South Lake.
