6th – 5th February

Hi Again,

well managed to get out to Birdwell near Barnsley for the 46+ Waxwing that were frequenting the area feeding on berries and coming to a puddle to drink and managed a few shots. Also the Brambling pair came back to my garden Monday 6th February for some food which was a bonus, although one was playing camera shy.
