not very clear shots through the window but I was delighted to see these birds sitting on the wires above my garden then dropping down to feed on the berries on one of my bushes.A first for me.Always thought they were a larger bird.How pretty they are.

Oh Sheila!!! How do you do it? I never cease to be amazed by what you see in your garden, just incredible and I have never seen one anywhere!

I do hope your husband is going on alright.

Warren,I was running around for camera and bins and they kept flying over the fields when traffic came past.But they came back twice so it was exciting.
Shysongbird,first time I have ever seen one cheered me up.OH is well,his back is better and 18 more sessions of treatment.Thanks for asking

Hi Sheila.
If you could see my face the colour you would see would be green. Oh to have Waxwings at the bottom of your garden makes me wish they had arrived in Kent. I too get then some years in the tree's at the bottom of my garden.
Hopefully they will turn up this year.
Well done on photographing them Sheila.
