Winter at Holme Bird Observatory (please click for clip)

Sunday, 14 November 2010


This autumn/early winter has seen an excellent movement of Waxwings right along the east coast, including in the Holme recording area. These superb pictures (click to make them bigger) were taken by Pam Rand and depict 3 Waxwings that lingered along the river Hun, between the Redwell Marsh hide and the standing caravan, on the afternoon of 7th November, a day that saw a small arrival on land ('northern Bullfinch' and 4 Woodcocks, as well as a small arrival of Blackbirds, Goldcrests and Robins), as well as some reasonable movement on the sea (including 4 Little Auks, 2 Sooty Shearwaters and 6 Pomarine Skuas, as well as a good duck passage).
