Flighty Waxwing


            Waxwings still at Stansfield Close but very flighty, it was
            nice to meet some other birders up there as well, DS.DW.PD.BH
            and a fella from Huddersfield, got to be honest I thought they were
            Starlings in flight with the light being low until they settled on a
            nearby tree. What a find and what a beautiful bird.
            also 6 Blackbird, 2 Mistle Thrush and 12+ House Sparrows were
            present on the close and 10+ Starling and 2 Great Tit.

Cracking shots Dave, good to meet you and good to meet Dave S again.

Waxwing was a first for me today, a lovely bird. They were still showing well this afternoon between 1.30pm and 2pm but light was very poor. Lets hope they stay around awhile longer :)
