Siskins abound and then more Waxwings

These past couple of weeks have been Siskin time - everywhere I've gone I've come across these beauties but better still were the birds in the garden. A peak count of 22 this past weekend was something to savour. They hung around all day for several days as well but it seems that they may have moved on now.


Anyway, this-morning, I drew back the curtains and noticed a few familiar silhouettes on the top of the alders. Finally got them perched up in the garden - seven Waxwings. A complete surprise! Too dark for any pictures and they didn't hang around more's the shame.
