Waxring

We at last caught up with a Waxwing the other day. Not a host of them but an unusually single individual; a loner picking berries from a couple of bushes in the car park of a medical centre in Aylesham. I did hear another but couldn’t locate it. Unusually the bird was colour ringed. The first colour ringed Waxwing I have seen. Details were sent to the ringers. It was ringed as a first winter male on Great Southern Road in Aberdeen on the 28th December last year. It was last seen on the 23rd January on Scotstown Road, Bridge of Don in Aberdeen among a flock of 80 birds feeding on Ornamental Rowans. He’s supposed to be heading north in spring. I wonder where he thinks he’s going!
