Max Ming's Confab (Waxwings on The Knott)

This year seems to have been one of the exceptional "Waxwing" years with large numbers of birds frequenting the area of Arnside Knott.  There are currently records being made on the Lancaster and District Birdwatching site of anything up to 350 birds present (11th December 2012), the birds are seen quite close to the knotted tree area and usually feeding on the many Yew berries
