Reply to Simon W. Forest Hill is just over the brow from here. They must be in East Dulwich soon, mustn't they?

Saw a small flock of waxwings (approx.dozen)preening themselves in a large tree at bottom of my garden. Must have been bathing in the near-by artificial lake.(Teus. & Wed. of this week) New Southgate , North London.
waxwings sighted bottom of garden in oak tree 18th March Verwood Dorset about a dozen fantastic to see them
I have just been fortunate enough to see a flock of about 10 wax wings sat in a tree in one of the neighbours gardens. It took me quite a while to find out what they are on google and after finding and reading this blog I feel quite lucky! Keighley, West Yorkshire, 25/3/2011
We spotted a small group of unusual birds in our Cotoneaster Tree and, having checked out our book and the website, can confirm they were Waxwings! Nice to see something different passing through and stopping off in our very small garden here in Caversham, Reading, Berks.
saw half a dozen waxwings in my Paisley garden this afternoon - all tucking in to red and orange pyracantha berries, really amazing to see these beautiful birds here!
I counted 25 in the tree opposite my house in Canford Heath, Poole on friday and yesterday they came back to the same tree but this time there were in excess of 50. It was amazing to see so many beautiful birds, especially as they don't usually venture this far south.
Only just seen this. We had a flock of Waxwings here in Nunhead (SE15). My neighbour counted about 45/50. They hung around for about 5 days. So yes, they did make it to SE London before heading off somewhere chillier, brr...
To update earlier posting, I can confirm the small group of Waxwings we saw a few weeks earlier here near Reading, Berks, have been hanging around this area since and we have noticed the last few days their numbers have been increasing from the 11 we origianlly saw to about 30 or more - could this be an "Eruption" brewing up before they fly back to Scandinavia? Interesting how they can come together like that? Don't think they will be here much longer though as they (along with the blasted pigeons) have stripped the cotoneaster tree of nearly all it's berries!
Saw about 15 in a Birch tree about 1 mile from the town centre of Bolton, Lancashire
Saw at least 10 Waxwings resting in the sunshine end of March. Pye Nest. Halifax West Yorkshire.Very beautiful birds to look at.

A flock of approx 20 Waxwings are in and around the trees in our garden in Christchurch, Dorset this weekend 9th/10th April.
Update. I'm resigned to the fact that I will not see them this year. Oh well. It's only a bird.
3 waxwings feeding on Cotoneaster this morning on the south coast of Fife. Tim MacDowel. 30th April 2011
I have seen waxwings on a few occasions over the last 60 yers or so, but I have lived in the same house for 25 years and never had a waxwing visit my garden------Until yeserday, 2May2011----- when one lone bird came and perched on the topmost branch of the ash tree. Made my day!
