Waxwing: Bracknell, Peacock Farm, December 10th – January 1st

Michael Hunt first found these birds in the new-ish Jennet’s Park estate beside the A329(M) on a TV aerial (well, his wife actually found them). The flock has grown over the month and can now be as many as 70+ but is more usually 50-ish

Coming from the M4 towards Bracknell on the A329(M) take the first turn after Wokingham (get in the “Local routes” lane) following the road east takes you along Peacock lane where you’ll see rose hips beside the road. The birds feed on these bushes and will be quite confiding (large trucks will, however, flush them)
