Wax work

Knocked the saw off, lifted the earmuff away to hear a distinctive trilling - a Waxwing in the adjacent garden.

It had its pick of Rowans & a mass of berries to go at - that was untill Mr Missel Thrush returned & off it went heading for the Sorbus collection at Houghall.

A large Alder held an acrobatic flock of Goldfinch & Siskin, with a rather dainty sun-lit Prunus Kanzan looked well in blossom, especially so as it held a pair of Bullfinch.

A pair of Collared Dove went in & out of the Leylandii's - a return visit later in the week & we'll see what they're up to.
