A Waxwing at Rainham Marshes
I've been lucky over the years to see some rare and scarce birds at Rainham Marshes and even found some too, but todays bird, a single Waxwing was a new site tick for me and many other people too. News came out, when I and few other London birders were checking the Gulls on the tip and the only bird of note was a single Med Gull. So we all made a mini twitch along to the Reserve and viewed from the balcony as it stayed in one of the large trees on the garrison estate. Not the best shots of a Waxwing I've taken but who cares, its a Waxwing! and it brighten up a very dull day bird wise and weather wise!!.
