Forty Waxwings had been reported this morning on Salisbury Rd, Preston, only to dissappear completely when I arrived just minutes later. Undeterred by this, I checked the usual places: Euston Street, Victoria Street, Stocks Road, even Morrisons car park, but no joy. On my way home I called back at Salisbury Rd again: Bingo! All forty were posing in full sun. Great to see them in Preston again, but they've led me a merry dance this year.
