New Year's Day is normally spent seeing how many birds you can see in a day, to start your year list off, but for myself and 'Blow Monkey' we wanted to spend the day watching Waxwings. We started off at Costco at Lakeside and had 20 birds but as the day went on our Max count was 73. These birds were always on the move around the local area as we kept finding small groups around the gardens and other industrial estates. We were later joined by my Nephew George and Martin Redfern,DDL and James H. At times the waxwings flew in and out of us while we were taking pictures. Unbelievable views! and a great way to kick off the New year!
