Making my way to look for Waxwings I found Waxwings, although the flock of 20 or so just outside of Wetherby moved as quickly as they arrived. A slightly more confiding bunch of 25 in Burley in Wharfedale were exceptionally flighty but were in great light. Hopefully more Waxwings to come, but within the Ely10, in the next month or so.
Increased checking of Starling like birds in trees also led me to enjoy the iridescence that the Starlings are now showing. Not quite the avian vermin that they have been passed off as in the not so distant past.
Happy New Year and Great Birding for 2017
