Waxwings, Scarborough - 10th January 2018
Wednesday is market day in Bridlington and we started the day manning our market stall. Unfortunately, the rain started falling and we eventually abandoned our efforts and returned home. All was not lost though, as two Waxwings were being reported in the car park of B&Q in Scarborough! Waxwings recently have been few and far between, so off we went to bag them! Several birders were already watching them, in the trees before they came down to feed on the cotoneaster berries. The downside was of course the weather! Very dull with drizzle making photography a real challenge! However, some record shots were obtained!
A great birthday present for me as well!
