Couple of weeksago I had my first sightings of waxwings. I was walking along the River Wharfe in Ilkley with Sparky; I had read that there had been waxwings spotted in Ilkley main car park. I saw a flock of about 20-30 birds fly overhead and hadn’t ever heard the calls they were making. Grabbed my bins and there they were. They stayed around in the trees quite a while, allowing me to take some photos – of which I was really pleased!
