Waxwings go to morrisons
A usual lowlight of the weekend- walking around a packed supermarket trying to throw things in a trolly and get out asap and without spending a bomb, impossible these days. However today's shopping trip had a consolation prize, while in the traffic jam to get into the supermarket car park Ruth suddenly pointed and shouted Waxwings and there feeding next to the car were 9 beauties. A good find tick for Ruth and always a nice species to see, the first time I hve seen them perched this year, the other three sightings this year have been very brief flyovers.
