I heard a report earlier this week that a flock of around 30 Waxwings were at one of our local supermarkets.
They were feeding in the trees in the car park... I went as soon as I could but missed them.
It's early doors and there are reports of thousands... so fingers crossed I will get to see them this winter.
These images of Waxwings were taken in November 2010... the last time they arrived in numbers.
Beautiful little birds to see... and they really gave me a run around that winter.
I would argue at work that I am a Birdwatcher not a Twitcher... I became a Twitcher that winter.
I would love to see them in my garden... that would be the icing on the cake.
