WAXWINGS on the Hills
I was very pleasantly surprised by the arrival of 4 WAXWINGS whilst out birding this morning. They arrived from the East and alighted on the tall trees close to the car park. They moved from tree to tree for about 5 minutes before flying off West. However, as I walked down towards the S-bend, I saw them circle back round and onto Steps Hill. They were in the area for at least 20 minutes. I managed the record shots above.
It was also nice to see a couple of Nuthatches in the area (Lucy Flowers)
