    The pics aren't brilliant but I blame the weather. It was teeming! These were taken in a Tesco carpark yesterday :) It seems to be a really good year for them.

    We've had waxwings once a few years back when we had the long freeze but not seen any since.

    Wow! Dorset. Wonder if we'll ever get them here in Devon. It would have to be a very cold Winter I think.
