Waxwings in tree.
I headed to Folkestone yesterday in the hope of trying to see some of the Waxwings that have invaded Folkestone , i arrived at approx 10am and parked up in the B&Q car park and instantly saw a huge gathering of Waxwings in the top of a nearby tree. they eventually flew over my head and started feeding on some berries much lower down and really close , here are a selection of many photos i took.
They were constantly flying around and feeding i counted approx 200 birds but there was probably more.
From here i headed to Dungeness and was treated to several good views of Bittern i had 2 perched in trees right out in the open and another bird in flight .
