New Year's Day

Went over to Costcos at Lakeside Shopping Centre, no, not for shopping, but hoping to see Waxwings. There was a flock of 50+, possibly around 70, no chance for any photos while I was there as the whole flock was pretty flighty. View local birder Shaun's excellent images HERE

Then, spent a couple of hours at Belhus Country Park, it was quite muddy, not surprising considering the amount of rainfall we have had recently. Today was bright, sunny & dry and the park was heaving with walkers, dog walkers and families making the most of the fine weather. Managed to see 42 bird species today.
