A Waxwing End To 2016

  After swearing at Rare Bird Alert, Twitter and Facebook friends for 2 months for seeing something I hadn't , I did finally catch up with our Scandanavian visitors who always steal the show in Winter.
  We were actually coming back from Scotland when I read about 20 odd in a car park in Hessle near Hull so after a bit of convincing Majella took the slight detour down the M62 into Sainsburys car park in Hessle.
  There we finally saw our first Waxwings of the Winter, 28 in total feeding on Rowan trees in the car park at Sainsburys and also over the road at Lidl, obviously checking out which place had the best offers.

  Stunning birds which even caught the attention of the shoppers at the supermarket or maybe it was just the group of people with cameras that they noticed and were just nosy as to what we were doing. ;)

Happy New Year to everyone.I hope 2017 will be amazing for you all :)
