Yesterday began very dull and rainy but brightened briefly for short spells, trying to follow the sun I drove west and went to the bird feeders in Dalby Forest. There was no food out but after putting a load of seed out and I confess some left over bread we soon had the usual flock of finches and tits including a lovely Marsh Tit there was also Magpies and four or five Carrion Crows. The light was very variable but briefly it was great enabling these shots of Crows.
We then drove back east along lanes but did not see too much a Common Buzzard was circling over Wykeham Ings. I then got advice from Dave Mansell (East Ayton Birding) to say there were four Waxwings in Filey. The birds were soon located and were very confiding, down to about 10', great to see these beuatiful exotic birds again. The light by this time 3:30pm+ was poor so my pictures do not do this species justice. If you want to see some cracking shots of these birds please follow the link to Dave's excellent website from my blog.
