Roadside encounter with Scandinavian beauty

Almost as exciting as it sounds! On Sunday Paul (recently back from Bolivia - well most of him anyway!) and I bumped into 25ish Waxwings at Llanelwedd on the way back from a site visit in South Wales. Failing light and no mist-net poles meant we weren't able to do full justice to the golden opportunity presented but we did manage to catch this little stunner before they went off to roost. Unfortunately they failed to show the following morning when we did have poles!! There's a lesson in there somewhere!

Lots more to follow I hope.
