News of two waxwings on a cherry tree in Gordon Road where I once lived seemed a more reliable twitch than the pine bunting. Only three minutes away from home they were immediately found and afforded some poor photos, bad positioning, poor light and two many twigs in the way. However, I got a few shots and I made several visits in the following days, I think they were present for just over a week.
I later went over to Hampton with a friend who wanted to try and photograph some birds. We found the two purple sandpipers plus two redshanks and a couple of sanderling plus a rock pipit.
