Waxwings at Howe Bridge Crematorium

In the last week or so we've been very fortunate to have up to 20 Waxwings in the L.O.S. recording area at Howe Bridge Crematorium.

The birds have been very tame and quite easy to photograph and on some occasions there have been more photographers present than birds!  The only problem has been the weather with the light often being very poor on many occasions.  That said, some excellent shots have been taken by our members.

At one point whilst I was there, a large group of noisy leather-clad bikers arrived en masse and headed towards us, clearly quite amused at what all the birders and photographers were doing. Read about what happened here on my blog.

I think you'll all agree that there is a great deal of photographic talent in our Society!
