Thrush Bonanza.....

I left home this morning,dropping Trace at work and then heading for Barton with the hope of a wander around the pits,came to an abrupt end when a huge fog bank rolled in and blanketed me and the pits in thick fog,so that was that.As i left along Far-Ings road,the welcome sight of 9 Waxwing were watched in the murk as they fed on frozen Hawthorn berrys and Rosehips.After this i travelled back towards home and decided to visit Scawby Park and here i hit a photographic jackpot finding a mixed flock of Fieldfare,Redwing,Blackbird,Song Thrush and Robins feeding in Scawby Hall gardens.They all gave fantastic views and i got some great photos,particularly of the Fieldfares,what a brilliant 3 hours.The only other bird of note here was a single Nuthatch calling in the trees nearby.A great few hours again,thanks to the brilliant thrushes.
