A brighter day and a flock of 100 ish Waxwings to entertain me today.

Great shots Bob. They are certainly enjoying those berries ... .
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
Apparently Scotland is the place to be ... probably Linda's garden ...
An 'irruption' of Waxwings ...
In reply to WendyBartter:
WendyBartter said:Linda ... Good tip in that report of the lady who spiked halved apples onto her garden fence, didn't know that Waxwings went for apples!
Have you got a link to that, it would be interesting to see the pictures. Al I have seen our Waxwings go for is Ron Berries and Bees. I know Fieldfare go for apples but I hadn't heard waxwings did. If so they might arrive in next door's garden where the trees are laden with apples.
