Even though we are basking in glorious sunshine and temperatures are in the high teens (sorry you lot up in Shetland), i couldn't helping thinking if we had entered spring or if it was still winter? Wednesday early evening, we had finished diner and were sat in the conservatory having a cup of tea when i noticed birds in the garden oak tree. I grabbed my bins and to my amazement and undoubted joy there were no fewer than 30 Waxwing's presumably picking insects from the new growth. I rushed for my camera then faffed a bit, unfortunately something spooked the Wood Pigeons in the garden that in turn scattered the Waxwings and they flew onto the golf course and briefly settled there. I did manage a shot through the trees thankfully, so at least i have a memento of the occasion. To top off the evening 6 Swallows fly over.
