It was hard going today as there was a blanket of fog over the Obs all day. Despite this two groups of Waxwings were found, 4 were again on Rowans along Copse Rd & 5 along the Burglars alley footpath.

8 Goldeneyes, 6 Red-breasted Mergansers, 1 Little Egret, 2 Water Rails, 160 Turnstones, 1 Cetti's Warbler, 9 Waxwings and 1 Grey Wagtail.

primaries and pale yellow edging to outer webs.

Ad. Waxwing (click to enlarge). Note white margins to tips of inner webs
of primaries and bright yellow edging to outer webs.
Apologies for the poor quality of the above photographs, but they 
were taken in abysmal conditions!
