Waxwings in Wyre!

It was great to record 4 Waxwings feeding on Rowan in Bliss Gate Road recently. These were spotted by Nicola Winnall who managed to get these shots. Between feeds they sat high up in the hedge. They’ve come into the country from Scandinavia to where they will return to breed.

Summer birds

It is good to know that Matthew Lissimore is still taking some great bird photographs in Wyre. Here are some excellent shots taken in the forest this year.
