Excitement at home - for the first time that we are aware of, we were descended upon by a flock of Waxwings between 20 and 30 strong. They set about busily munching the red berries that the Redwings had, rather unusually, omitted to polish off. For once, luck was with me: my lens had been repaired and returned just in time by Canon, I actually spotted our unusual visitors and the light was reasonable. They stayed for an hour or so, long enough to consume the crop, then moved on.
