Foxhill today

                                             
                                               
                                                 

A bright start with a red sunrise but deteriorating as the day went on with drizzle and low cloud.
Just the usual resident stuff about today apart from a single Jay over Grimstons field towards the station at midday and a flock of 15 Redwing in the same area feeding in Hawthorns.
Thought Id cracked it on the way back to work when I saw the silhouette of 6 birds feeding in a Rowan tree in the grounds of the Willows medical centre but after a short dash with camera at the ready they turned out to be Starlings and not what I was hoping for, Waxwings. This same tree held a small flock of Waxwings a few years ago, (NK).

It would be nice to clock some Waxwings before the year end Bri.

No more Ring Ouzels reported in the country today. That Shelf one would be a cracking 'year ender'!

Cool Magpie Pic! There were an unusual number of Rook at Mountain this morning. Also at Raggalds on the way home there were 15 LBJs in flight - those 'wish I'd never seen em types'.
