Up to 6 WAXWING were in the Sallyport area

  Mid-morning and I was vtalking to Martin outside the Coop, when Ren called to say that he had 2 WAXWING in front of his bedroom window at Sallyport. I rushed up there and found 3 birds feeding in a Holly Bush. They stuck around for 10 minutes and headed off low just around the corner. When I relocated them, there was 4 WAXWING! By now more birders were arriving and all 4 birds showed at very close range in the Sallyport area.




In the morning sun, they looked superb

I'm sorry about all the pics, but if they are there tomorrow, you can be sure that there will be more images
Unfortanly the Chough was picked up dead this morning on Peninnis by the lighthouse. It looks like crows have killed it by the battered head.

Great band to listen to. Fat Freddy’s Drop is a New Zealand seven-piece band from Wellington, whose musical style has been characterised as any combination of dub, reggae, soul, jazz, rhythm and blues, and techno. Originally a jam band formed in the late 1990s by musicians from other bands in Wellington, Fat Freddy’s Drop gradually became its members' sole focus. The group gained international recognition in 2003 after their single "Midnight Marauders" was re-distributed by record labels and DJs in Germany. The group has toured Europe nearly every year since then. The first studio album by Fat Freddy’s Drop, Based on a True Story, was the first independently-distributed album to reach first place in New Zealand record sales directly after release in 2005, and is the highest-selling album by a national artist in the country's history
