Eleven Waxwings on a very wet and windy day

Home Eleven Waxwings on a very wet and windy day

On the 28th-29th November 2015…

This weekend I decided to go in search of berry loving Waxwings. Saturday proved fruitless, with no sign at any of their favorite places. On the sunday however I heard reports of a group at Ashington, Northumberland, so after breakfast I drove up to have a look. I was in luck, close to Woodhorn Motors in Ashington, eleven Waxwings were showing extremely well.

The next day, before the heavy rain, I was very happy to catch up with a Black-throated Driver on the north side of East Chevington. Great views of a very attractive bird with lots of character. On the drive back I drove past Cresswell, but there was no sign of the reported Hooded Crow. Maybe next time.
