I've been very lucky the last few days. The end of last year has seen some good numbers of these birds near me, and I've managed to catch up with them a couple of times.
I got a call from Trevor yesterday. 'Do ya fancy going to see some Waxwings in the town center?'
We drove over there, parked up in one of the extortionately priced car parks, and straight away found a large group of at least 50 or 60 birds, trilling away, and guzzling berries, as the shoppers completely unaware of this spectacle of nature, went about their business of spending money they haven't got, on stuff they probably don't need.
I hate Milton Keynes at times.
But times like this, I enjoy it ........ a bit.
