Every month we take a left field stab at which extreme rarities may turn up. Once in a while we even blow our own trumpet about previous predictions… The Pacific equivalent of the closely-related Black-throated Diver was first recorded in the UK in January 2007. Since then there have been just seven records (including a bird in the Mount’s Bay, Penzance, area of Cornwall which has returned every year since 2007). That bird remains the most reliable chance to see one this month (if it returns for another winter). There have been fewer than five Cedar Waxwings in the UK, with the last mainland bird being a well-twitched individual back in 1996, with Waxwings, in Nottingham. Will this Waxwing winter bring another from North America?
