Usk

Main Sighting: Probable Waxwings
Brief view of what appeared to be a few Waxwings on A470 just outside Usk this morning, around the junction with Chepstow Road. Lots of redwings, blackbirds and thrushes feeding on Hawthorn and other berries on this stretch. There have been Waxings in this area historically so worth keeping an eye out.
