It's been a while since I've been behind the camera so when I heard we had waxwings in a local industrial estate, I just had to pop down to get some shots!

A couple of favourites here with a write up in the blog and a new waxwings gallery page.

Thanks, got up early for a change on one of the few days we had some sunshine!

Think they were actually in Rowans bush?

Very nice indeed, especially that second one.

I managed to get some good ones as well, even using the Bigma with the 1.5x TC handheld.

Bloomin' chilly wind though and my fingers didn't start to feel right until lunchtime.

@ eenymac, was good to see you last weekend and again this weekend at the reservoirs. Would like to see some of yours too!

@ Gwyn, thanks for that, appreciated. Haven't been around for a while as I've ended up turned the phone shop into an art gallery and working on a bespoke framing service too!

Thanks Stuey!

@ FrogFish, yeah, my first ones too, stunning birds, especially for Aylesbury! Think ours have passed through and on their way to warmer climes now.

Thanks Alan.

Also happy to report that the 2nd image above was entered into a local camera club competition and scored 20 out of 20, so well chuffed!

I thought it was worth at least 19.9 I'd have given it 20 but the background is out of focus
