Bombycilla club


Here are a few more images of the waxwing at Ashington. Always a delight to view, but I still do not have my dream shot! I'll just have to go and see some more...


This puffed up individual appears to be bending the branch! I was very lucky to connect with these birds on a nice sunny winter day. As I sit here writing this post it's dull and cold outside... Waxwing can look very grey plumages when the sun is not out.


I did get some images of birds calling, but they had the knack to have their heads at just the wrong angle! Maybe next time.

As with previous posts, click the images for a larger, sharper version.

Thanks Phil. I expect that they will be available for a few weeks, roaming the region. Always a delight...
