Looking Back (Part 2) and Waxwings

I had a brief walk after work in the afternoon sunshine at Chambers Wall in the hope that some Waxwings would be around and maybe a chance of a photo or two. I spent some time wandering the bushes and after an hour 11 Waxwings flew over me trilling but did not stop. Other birds noted on the walk included 2 Marsh Harrier, c250 Fieldfare, c50 Redwing, 5 Reed Bunting, 2 Shelduck, c200 Brent Geese, c30 Redshank, 1 Goldcrest, c20 Linnet, 1 Little Grebe, 1 Little Egret, 3 Kestrel and 1 Sparrowhawk. Hopefully a few Waxwings will give me the chance in the next few weeks to get a few shots in the sun, this one was taken a few weeks ago at Chambers Wall.
