Huge WAXWING gathering in East Kent

Just to keep you up to date with the east Kent WAXWING build-up. Get ready for it - there was an incredible number of 1400+ birds in recent days. The birds are in the area north of Richborough Power station along the Ebbsfleet Road close to the entrance of Stonelees Golf Course - some 400 decked there plus two flocks of 100 on the golf course and a huge c800 airborne flock but they all moved off to the south; they may well have been in the area three days and it is possible there could be more!! I only! had 170 and an 80 there then a 40 on the way home this afternoon a true birding wonder..... (Craig Sammels)
