Friday 27th December

Waxwings galore again! 18 near Long Lane railway crossing, Crossgates, and 37 in the park and feeding on the corner of Nightingale Lane, plus 55 at Cayton playing field. A Chiffchaff was on Marine Drive, where 24 Common Scoter were seen offshore. A Red-throated Diver and a Razorbill were in North Bay and an adult Mediterranean Gull was at Scalby Mills. A female Blackcap was observed feeding on Mahonia flowers on Heron Lane. At Low Marishes this afternoon there were 70 Pink-footed Geese, 230 Greylag Geese, 5 Whooper Swans, a Shelduck, 160 Wigeon, 150 Pied Wagtails and 2200 Lapwings. In Dalby Forest a Green Woodpecker was at lower Flaxdale and a few Bramblings were seen between there and Housedale, while 60+ very vocal Crossbills were still around Haygate.
