Merthyr waxwing

2 birds within courtyard of Buckland House c50m south of where Mark Waldron found them. I just about managed 1 shot at 14:20 then they flew off to tree tops alongside the river Taf. Buckland house is situated between Caedraw Schools and Avenue de Clichy and contains one of the few trees with any berries left.


  1. Glad you caught up with them. Hope they hang around.

  2. Great for you to get them on your doorstep and as pgil say i hope they hang around and i checked hirwaun yesterday and still loads of berries and with birds in neath too it,s only got to be time before in the cynon valley and if not already .

  3. There are still 3 trees with berries in Cyfarthfa Park on the exit road above the lake, which is where I expected them to turn up. I had more or less given up on town so thank goodness for Mark Waldron.
