Waxwings !!

After several abortive attempts to see the reported Waxwings in Goring by Sea I I finally managed to catch up with them during the week and although the light was poor I managed to get a few shots...
Here on Pagham Beach the Brent Geese are getting restless and with the improved weather today I think they are considering returning to their homeland in the far north! A Starling was heard mimicing a Wigeon to perfection today and it seemed strange to hear the call coming from the top of a telegraph pole!
Several resident birds are now singing regularly and the thought that Spring is not far away is very welcoming.

They're such wonderful birds, I wish they visited more frequently :)
