I saw my last Waxwings on 1st January 2013. Way too long ago! That's why I've been trying hard to see some this year. Today was my fourth attempt and fortunately a successful one, even though I had quite a long wait for them to show, and for a while I thought it was going to be another dip. There were ten in total and they were feeding on rose hips in the central reservation of the A38. Not the easiest place to get photos and definitely not very kind on the ears or the lungs. Waxwings are worth it though! Here's a few of my better efforts at photos, most were just of twigs or the sides of speeding juggernauts!

Lovely to see Waxwings as we don't have them in Australia.
