In Derbyshire they are described as 'rare vagrants' (rather than 'very rare').

Where were you walking?

Through the Pringles up the Red House walk crossing the Old Newbold back lane , going up towards the Eyres  Chapel and the Observatory , the bird was in the fields where the  horses are on the Old Newbold back lane , there are some big ash trees in those field hedges !

We have three sparrows

Surrounded by jackdaws magpies greys and furry things, we are not to mention

neighbours complain about mess from pigeons, their fault for putting 20 k of wheat a week

Dont let the vermin stop you feeding the song birds - do something about the vermin

Hi guys not sure but for the past three weeks whilst taking the dog out I've been hearing what I think is a Hoopoe , but I carnt seem to spot it , I've not heard one before ,have they ever been reported in North Derbyshire before ?

This is funny, I was just going to post that there's one been getting photographed somewhere on the Furness peninsula over the last week.

A brilliant response from the PW fraternity, it shows that we take a real interest in our feathered friends.

I did a week catfishing in Riba Rocha, Spain, on the first evening saw a White Stork, one of a few over the week, Little Bittern, Hoopoes, Purple herons, Black Kites were prolific and we spotted a few Golden Orioles one day. We were pleased to see such a profusion of birds because the Catfish were preoccupied with spawning carp and kept a low profile - although my mate did catch a 99 pounder 😵

Never seen one but would love to. Still haven’t seen a Hawfinch.

I was very fortunate to see an ‘ear-full’ or ‘museum’ of waxwings one winter several years ago, but have not seen one since.

Lovely little birds.

Waxwings reported in various Gloucestershire areas over the last few days, (Fairford, Forest of Dean, Gloucester).

There were some being photographed in Ulverston a few weeks back, and just double checking on Google they've shown up in Manchester and Lincolnshire as well. 

I had two male Chaffinches in my garden today,  not normally anything to get excited about but there haven't been any in the garden for a long time.

I get the occasional Chaffinch in the garden, but have a regular daily visit from between 5-10 Goldfinch to the sunflower hearts feeder, also a Pied Wagtail dropped in the other day.

All the best for the New Year.

Goldfinch are pretty regular along with a few Green,  and the occasional Bull, but Chaffinch numbers have been well down for a few years now because of disease,  always plenty to see in the garden 😁

Atb to you too 👍
