Rather cold,dull and overcast,(9:30 -11:30 ).

I walked into the Research Station via the East Malling end (by the church).I had only gone a short distance  along the path when I bumped into John Davis,who was also on the lookout for Waxwings.Although we saw good numbers of Redwing and Fieldfare,which were mainly feeding on the fallen apples.It wasn`t until we had almost walked all the way through the Site,that we had our first sighting.Seven in all,which came up from one of the orchards and flew across to Ditton quarry,which is on the very edge of the Research Station.(eastern end).It was there that we spent the next hour watching the birds feeding, which was mainly on wild Rose hips.

Our thanks to Adam Whitehouse (East Malling/Ditton and Barming Blog)
