Waxwing trapped and ringed! The first for 47 years

On 2nd December warden Sophie Barker trapped and ringed a Waxwing at the Bird Observatory. This is only the 3rd Waxwing to ever have been trapped at the Obs and the first since 1965 - Sophie's verdict, 'worth waiting 47 years for'. This bird, a young male, is one of a steady trickle of Waxwings that have arrived at the Obs during November and December.
