Waxwings, Boulevard Retail Park

A great location for a species that so often turns up in supermarket carparks. In this case it is a retail park but much the same really. This party of 12 come hot on the heels of 3 at Crown Lakes on 1 January.

Although very tame, the dull conditions and activity of the birds made photography rather difficult, but here are a few shots including a closeup of the waxy tips.

Waxwings Bombycilla garrulus

Digiscoped with the Nikon CP995, Leica APO77 and 20x eyepiece.
