Foggy Day!

Hello

Very foggy day all day today prevented very much birding so the morning was taken up visiting and re-stocking feeding stations. A Woodcock was flushed up at Scotland Wood and Brixworth Water Treatment Works continued to host three Chiffchaffs and at least one Grey Wagtail.

There was no sign of the Waxwings at Hanging Houghton today, the dwindling berries probably being insufficient to support a large flock.

Regards

This species is rare in the UK
and most records refer to birds
flying past headlands or fishing
Scottish waters. This juvenile
however was photographed on the
River Witham in Lincolnshire,
hopefully this doesn't mean this 
fine-looking bird is ill or injured.
