Waxwings at last!

Determined to see a Waxwing this winter I gave in to the 'twitch' and drove over to Mayhew Road in Lewes at first light this a.m. I say first light if only there had been some! A very grey day meant some fairly grey looking birds for the majority of the time. However, those of us who were present were fortunate to get some incredibly close views when the birds made their regular sortie down to the berry bushes just a few yards from where we were stood. Fantastic birds. Seven birds were present until at least 11.15. Left feeling quite chuffed! p.s. Thanks Dave for the push in the right direction.
