Who can resist a Waxwing or two? I can't and now entering the fifth week of a rather nasty respiratory bug, I needed to take some air, without the need for travelling too far on foot. Locally, Waxwings have been few and far between locally, so a look around on RBA indicated a favoured area in Cosby village (White Barn Drive), a few miles into Leicestershire. At first, nothing but eventually eleven birds arrived and descended on a berry tree in order to entertain several birders present.
It was also a good opportunity to try out the 7D with the 400mm. Any comments on how i'm doing will, of course be appreciated!
