This blog is about all forms of wildlife I record around North Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes in particular. My main interests for 2012 will be looking for anything I've not seen before.

Waxwings - Grange Farm

27 sat in the Oak of my daughters school this morning. They then flew off towards Budgens around 08:26. Well chuffed with an estate/school run tick - so close to my own estate.

Rob what was the name of the Rowans/berries on the two trees as you drive out of Medbourne. The top third of both of these has been eaten. Could be the Waxwings or could be Redwings? Fingers crossed they return.


  1. I believe they are Crataegus Llavaelli a relation of Hawthorn.
    Still looking for my first Waxers of the year.

  2. Cheers Rob, actually that might mean the local Redwings are eating these berries and not Waxwings.
    Best bet now is the OU!
