Danny’s wildlife watch


Wax wing bird

If you’ve recently visited the Science Park the keen bird watchers amongst you might have noticed that the Science Park has been visited by a flock of Waxwings (genus Bombycilla) over the last week or so, and which has attracted the attention of the local Twitcher community. The birds were in one of the car parks this morning on Phase 1 of The Park, and will be feeding on as many of the red berries as they can find. They are a bit smaller than a starling and have a prominent crest, a black throat, yellow and white in the wings and a yellow tipped tail. They don`t tend to stay in one place for long so be quick if you would like to see them.
