Wheatears, warblers and waders - we're all looking forward to some spring passage in the coming weeks. However here in Leics. we are still awash with other more wintery W's.
Glorious sunshine today, so I nipped out at lunch to have a look for some local Waxwings that are technically a patch tick (I say technically, what I actually mean is that these are within the Soar Valley South patch boundary whereas the previous one I saw a few years ago was on the boundary). Just aswell I bothered as I got some glorious views of the ravenous beauties and even managed to get a few shots ..... click for big. I nipped past on the way home aswell - I took a shot of them all perched in a tree and counted them on the big screen - at least 105.
