and more...........

A lunch time walk down the Wooler Water (close to the sewage works) produced a very confiding flock of 32+ waxwings.  They were mainly feeding on hawthorn berries but also fly-catching.  On occassions they dropped down to the river for a drink and bathe in the shallow pools.  A worthy hour was spent watching their behaviour.

Two male goosander flew past the office window.


  1. That's a nice flock of Waxwing George. They've made it over here now as well. Cheers, Seumus

  2. Certainly looking like a Waxwing winter (see my Wild West post today)
