I spent the majority of the day doing DIY in my new house but a dog walk just after sunrise resulted in several Common Snipe, a Redshank and a single Green Sandpiper all making the most of a thawed-out ditch.
'Little stuff' was made up of Fieldfare, Bullfinch and Linnet. Although still under almost a foot of snow it looked as though it is going to provide me with some interesting species over the coming years.
Chores inside the house were dull but a glance out the front window at the perfect time resulted in a flock of at least 15 Waxwings being clocked! They did a little circuit before dropping into a garden.
A break in the DIY (to go and get some more DIY stuff) resulted in 3 more showy Waxwings on the A63 near Cliffe.
