so it has arrived, and even better fairly close to home. Only a 30 minute drive to an industrial estate in Cheshire. The weatherman had promised clear blue skies however when I arrived it was overcast, wet and very gloomy... immediatly a couple of Waxwings flew from the tree that I had parked nearby. No chance of any photos even if they had stayed. I took the time to watch the Winter thrushes feeding on the berry laden bushes.
There where plenty of other twitchers about who had seen roaming flocks of Waxwings further down the estate, after a short wait the sun came out, the cloud cleared and then they descended onto a nearby tree and spent the next 20 minutes enjoying the sun, inbetween preening and hawking for flys.
wheres all the colour gone?
