Waxwings - Rayleigh Weir

As per the previous post i was at Bowers Marsh when i heard news of a few Waxwing at Rayleigh Weir McDonalds.

I had also heard of 300 birders all getting their 2017 year ticks in. I went none the less and was surprised to see about 20 people standing there roadside. No birds though.

Apparently they were quite mobile but seemed to come back to the same three berry laden trees every 15-20 minutes. Sure enough they arrived on time and had their fill only to take flight this time to a large tree opposite the new car dealer ship.

10 Minutes and they were back in the car park one again, quick grab of berries and off. I can only presume it was due to the close proximity of the people getting food and the numbers of people about.

I managed a few shots... 5 birds in total
