Wonderful Waxwing and Welney Whoopers

Enjoyed a superb and sunny day on Wednesday which began at my local patch in Hitchin, Herts but ended in Norfolk at Welney WWT. After leaving Hitchin i simply had to go and try spot a local-ish Waxwing in Stretham, Cambridgeshire. It was a brilliant sight and i couldn't stop taking pictures!

This Mistle Thrush was the only one that didn't appreciate the Waxwing, it repeatedly chased it off!


Here is the fella in question, a stunning bird and very confiding...









Afterwards i drove to Welney just over the border in Norfolk encountering this massive Wood Pigeon flock


And a very confiding Kestrel...

Welney was superb for photography, the Pochard and Whooper Swans made great subjects, enjoy...
