I took a trip to Northfleet today to look for the Waxwings, and while I was there I had found out by one of the locals that they had not been seen, so after a short while I went back to The Bounty pub in Strood. I arrived just before 13:30 and Pam saw some birds fly up into the big tree opposite the pub, I quickly got my bins on them and I saw that there was 8 WAXWINGS in all. They spent most their time in this tree, but they did fly across to the small tree in the garden a couple of times. I stayed there until 3ish, and then left. The last time I saw them was at 2.45.
I may not have seen all of those at Northfleet but at least I did see some.
I still cannot take pictures of birds up in trees, don't know what I am doing wrong, I will have practise at home. I did get a picture of one, it's not brilliant but at least it is a record shot.
