I have not been out everyday as decorating has swung into action but I wanted to see waxwings so a trip to Northfleet was on the menu. I arrived seeing a few birders but of course no waxwings, fortunately, two waxwings returned giving poor views, especially for photos.
Brilliant white glossing completed I nipped over to Hampton in the afternoon meeting Mike Hook. We saw the two purple sandpipers and a couple of sanderling plus two redshank.
Another waxwing hunt this time a little nearer at Strood near 'The Bounty' pub. I saw nine, easily missed as they sat high up amidst al the twigs making photography difficult.
