A day off from work today. I had to drop my wife off at work then my son at the station for college. So no chance of my prefered early start. I started off at Woodoaks Farm nr Maple Cross. The only bird of note here was a Little Owl in it's usual tree. Next was a quick whizz around Stockers Lake. Goldeneye, Ring-necked Parakeet, Siskin, Lesser Redpoll, Kingfisher were the best I could do here. From Stockers I travelled a few junctions around the M25 to the A41 and up to Aylesbury. Outside the Micha building on Gatehouse Way 20 quite mobile Waxwings. I stayed here for nearly 3 hours enjoying the Waxwings feeding on the ornamental berries outside the Micha factory. Quite a crowd of birders had gathered here and lots of interest from members of the public as they went by. The local press in the form of a reporter and a photographer from the Bucks Herald also turned up. They took some pics of us birders but the Waxwings had disappeared for a few minutes. Although it didn't rain the weather was dull, overcast and windy all day.
