Tracy gets her target bird

                                            A real fierce sunrise
                       Waxwings at last       Photo Tracy Collier.
                            At least 11 birds present.     Photo Tracy C.
                        Some tend to be camera shy.      Photo Tracy C.

A real bright ,fierce sunrise this morning which was short lived leaving a strong SW>6-7 and heavy rain.
Tracy managed to get to Brighouse in her lunch break for another attempt at her target species and hit the jackpot with the Sainsbury Waxwings and managed some good photos despite the poor light
Tracy missed the birds yesterday and also the Bradford birds last week but at last a well deserved reward for her efforts
Well done Tracy, Snow Bunting next on the list ?
Thanks to messages from Calderbirds grapevine with the Waxwing info, a real asset to birding.

Glad you got them Tracy. They were still around at 1.30 ish. Also good to see Denise down there well armed with camera and Geoff Smith as well.

Tracy said...

Thanks.

Will I have to get full winter costume for Snow Bunting and go up Soil Hill?

Just good boots and a coat with a hood will do, no good for your street cred but the pics will be worth it.

Like the droplets of water on the bird when you double click.

Tracy said...

Haha. Well never mind. I am sure my street cred will stand it.

I didnt notice the droplets of water. You have a keen eye.

Glad you got them in the end, Tracy. Your pictures came out really well.

Tracy said...

Thanks Denise. They turned out much better than I expected (after a bit of tampering!).

How did yours turn out?
