Waxwing Invasion.....

I finally caught up with some Waxwings this morning  near Yorkletts in Kent , there had been up to 40 birds present this morning , when i arrived behind Youngs lorry park there were no birds to be seen plus no birders about to get any info , i did a bit of a drive around and then located the flock by they bridge that goes over the Thanet Way and had at least 35 birds all to myself , just sat in my car enjoying great views and listening to their " trill " call , i put the news out on the pager , here are some photos i took .

They were disturbed by a van that drove by and flew back towards Youngs lorry park before i left .
