Gorgeous

A trip into the metropolis that is Norwich was a good opportunity to call on one of the side streets where a few Waxwings had been seen the day before.

Waxwings have not been that common this year – it’s not been a classic Waxwing Winter. It took me a little while to walk the area and find the likely tree or trees where they could be. There was only one. A tree covered in red berries. It was so depleted of leaves and so small I couldn’t even tell what type of tree it was but with the berries it looked like a good Waxwing tree. I brought the car, parked up opposite and waited. In the short time I was able to wait I never did see a Waxwing however a flock of Redwings came to gorge themselves on the berries. I adore these winter thrushes. These too have been scarcer up on the coast this year than normal.
