Waxwings in Ipswich

We made the trip up the A12 to Ipswich this morning and found the seven wintering Waxwings in Blanche Street. It's a small street with a single white Rowan Tree so it wasn't too difficult to find the birds which spent much of their time in the top of a large oak dropping to feed on the Rowan for a few seconds every half an hour or so. The light was terrible making it difficult to obtain images and we moved on after an hour or so.

Marsh Tit

Great Tit

A dip at Euston for Golden Pheasant delivered four bonus year ticks with Coal Tit, Marsh Tit, Treecreeper and Nuthatch before we moved on to Lynford where we failed to find the expected Hawfinch. 

Year list now 123
