Cannock Chase Bird Watching

09 Dec

We’ve been here before, but it’s generally worth the trip due to the number of birds that congregate for a feed!…….

The Blue Tits are always posers, lovely colours and in good condition too!…..

The Nuthatches were busy too and for some reason I always struggled to capture a decent shot, either my technique is improving or they’re slowing down!……;)

Something different for us this visit too, Fieldfares flew into a couple of trees near us and the cameras were swung around!……;)

…..and aerobics too?……:)

Closely following the Fieldfare was a flock of Waxwings!…… Neither of us had seen Waxwings before and the sight was a real bonus!…….

We don’t often venture too far from home at this time of year and a round trip of 90 something miles when there’s every chance of snow has to be considered, this day was well worth the effort!…………

Thanks for looking in, have a good week!……………….;)

    We have cedar waxwings drop by here in Virginia to dine on cedar berries and whatever other berries they can find and then leave as abruptly as they came.
