Nov 8th by Ian under Bird Watching

WaxwingDidn't have to go far this year to see my first waxwing as it was feeding with starlings and blackies on rowan berries on a tree visible from my porch. That's a first for our garden and I managed a pic with my compact Panasonic DMC FZ7. Strange that it was a lone waxwing as I have always seen them in flocks before. Just need some frost on the cotoneaster berries and the fieldfares and redwings will be on them.

    We had a flock of about 15 in a rowan tree at the bottom of our garden on Sunday morning along with about a dozen fieldfares. The waxwings were a new bird for me. No good photos due to it being a dull morning.

    today 7/12/10, my wife spotted 50 + waxwings in Perth’s city mills car park on Rowan trees, before she got a pic a pair of Mistle thrushes (she suspects) shooed them off.
