Three days with the Waxwing at Boyton RSPB, found by Adrian Hinchcliffe

Day One only a quick visit

Decide to catch him early the next day, I got there at 6.30am, he turned up a 7.30am

Went back today at 7.30am and he was sitting in the bush waiting for me !!!
Light was really bad
He nearly fell prey to a Sparrowhawk

It then poured with rain, so I had a feeling they would drop in on the Deben, so I drove to Bawdsey and there they were on the salting (10 of them), grabbed my 500mm and took these pics
