Waxwings and Kites (1 Viewer)


Well-known member
Had a very early start,not birding but work,had to be in London by 7 am and decided to take my bins and camera just in case,i was on my way back to Brum by 8 and decided to come up the M40 for the Red Kites,i came off at a place called Stokenchurch ? i think,parked up and instantly had brilliant views of 10ish Kites and took some ok for me photo's.I cant understand why there isn't a feeding station like in Wales,also had good veiws of Kestral and Buzzard.Heading back up the motorway i decided to carry on to Tamworth for the Waxwings which were suprisingly easy to find just sitting in a tree,which i parked right under,stunning birds and a life tick for me,so all in all a great day without really trying.

Sunday 28th feb 2010. 3 waxwings still on the same tree they have eaten 1/2 of the berrys now. there are 2 mistle thrushes that keep chasing them away and then they have there feed and the waxwings come back. very easy to find 1 mile off m42 junction 10. wilnecote health centre. Good close views from the car.
