Clearly distantly related to Howdon Blogger's missus, Mrs M was sipping the finest Kenyan medium roast in the sunroom of Liverbirder Towers (if Dee is reading this, it's at the end of the east wing) when she remarked that a bird with a yellow end to the tail had emerged from the wood that is adjacent to the sunroom and was on the roof!
As I looked out, imagine my surprise as it flew back to the trees and joined about two dozen more Waxwings!
Sprint (ish) to the car to get the camera; you can't beat bringing a chilled camera into a warm house! So a few foggy shots and some usual Liverbirder expletives and eventually a few images.
From below out of the window:
On the sunroom gutter:
Looking the wrong way just to annoy me:
And slightly better:
Drinking Eau de la Gouttiere Liverbirder had the flock back and forth from trees to gutter to trees and also to pond!
And the new game - Where's Waxy?
