Waxwings have been a bit thin on the ground this winter, but with one turning up at not too far off Corby, I decided to pay a visit on Sunday before seeing my Mum for Mothers' Day.
The bird had been seen in what is quite a usual spot for Waxwings, an industrial estate/retail park, frequenting a hawthorn tree just outside a pub. On arrival the bird was nowhere to be seen, but within 10 minutes it was showing remarkably well in said tree, feeding and even calling at times. The weather and light were dull and dreary, but I managed a few photos of what was my first bird of this species since the 'invasion' a couple of years ago.
