Waxwings, Sandhouse Lane

Gwd's Waxwings of yesterday were still around Sandhouse Lane. They were difficult to count, but around 70-100 birds. Nice to see them on trees with foliage for a change! They fed on a cherry tree and a large patch of Ivy on a Scots Pine.

Local Patch: Firecrest - a site first

A long expected find by John Lynch - a singing male Firecrest. The sun had all but gone as the cloud and wind increased, the now emergent foliage meant focusing manually. None-the-less - a super find by John.

Pied Flycatcher

Bob Chalkley discovered a fine male Pied Flycatcher at Blows Downs, Dunstable today. It was often elusive and mobile, eventually, in the late afternoon Sun, it settled down feeding from the paddock slope hedge-line enabling a few images.
