Waxwings - Hillmorton

Reports of Waxwings in Hillmorton (to be more local they would have to be in my garden!) led me to loiter on a street corner, freezing cold, in hope. Soon, eight Waxwings appeared, dropping down to the small berry trees outside the Croft Salon near Fenwick Drive. It was a very busy spot with many clients attending the salon, pedestrians and a very busy road. Amazingly, out on nowhere another ten arrived making eighteen. Fantastic. The only problem was the light and again I struggled to get the speed necessary to freeze the movement of these super performers. One day, my luck may change!
