I couldn't believe what I was looking at, seeing a Waxwing about 40-50 feet away. With excitement I got the bins to have a better look at it then before I could get the bins up to my eyes, there was even more of them in the tree. I was able to count them without the bins, there was 29 of them. With heart beating a bit faster I had a really good close up of them. They kept flying down into a garden 2 down from me where I know he has some fruit tree's and berry bushes, and they kept flying in to feed then back to the tree. They did this for about 15 minutes, even worse I didn't have the camera out at that time, I was more intersted in watching them.
I went to get it and I did manage to get a few shots of them, very bad ones, but a record a shot anyway.
I then decided to pop down to the neighbours garden to try to get a closer look at them but before I could get out of the door they decided to move on. I am not sure if they are still in the area, but I will keep a eye out for them in case they come back.
I have since been watching on and off for the Waxwings but nothing else to report.
The best of the birds feeding in the garden today is the female Brambling, and 2 male Blackcaps.
Other species seen today feeding in the garden is as follows:
Blue Tit, Great Tit, Chaffinch, Goldfinch, Greenfinch, House Sparrow, Dunnock(2), Robin(2), Great Spotted Woodpecker(m), Collared Dove, Wood Pigeon, Starling, Blackbird.
My "Bird of the Day" is a no brainer, it can only be the **Waxwing**
