Putnoe street waxwings.

Waxwings 8 April.

A very pleasant surprise in the large Oak trees opposite our front garden. 19 present flycatching and present for well over half an hour. The same trees had held very vocal tawny owls over the christmas period.Another of those nice surprises that Bedfordshire manages to turn up from time to time.Having seen Waxwings in norfolk a number of times this winter these were the only ones I managed to see in Beds and they came to find me !!!!! A local Arctic Redpoll present a month before, that showed well enough for the telescope but not for the camera, was another county surprise.
