I make no apology for including more sketches of these beautiful birds. This morning I found at least 70 gathered in a large oak tree north of the rowans where I first found 9 on 29th October. Small parties were breaking off from the main gathering point to feed at different rowans. Some were flycathching. What seems strange is that it is still early to be observing them. It will be fascinating to watch the distribution of Waxwings as the winter progresses.
