Another mixed bag from me this week. The search for Waxwings goes on. Numerous miles travelled but still no joy. I will find them one day and hopefully in good light. Still, I did find some Whooper Swans. These are shown here at the top, disappearing into the distance.
Here's a Meadow Pipit having a good scratch on this fence post.
The light wasn't great, but compared to most of the weekend this was not too bad.
This Grey Heron was on the active lookout for some fish.
really pretty sky in the first shot!ReplyDelete
These are wonderful images indeed ! Not much wild life over here. Please have a good Tuesday.ReplyDelete

Those whoooper swans look so beautiful-lovely shapes. And great against the orange sky.ReplyDelete
Wow - beautiful beautiful!ReplyDelete
That's a beautiful shot of the swans Adam. I am in South Manchester at the moment and have not seen anything except the rain!ReplyDelete
Your first shot is stunning!ReplyDelete
You got my favourite birds here: swans and herons!ReplyDelete
Very nice photos!
All great photos but I especially like the first one with the swans against that beautiful sky color.ReplyDelete
I have been looking for Bohemian waxwings. Are these the ones you're looking for?ReplyDelete
Great birds, the swans is favorite shot! Good luck on your waxwing hunt!ReplyDelete
LOVE the color of the sky behind behind the swans (beautiful shot)and your composition with the post and wire.ReplyDelete
Wonderful captures Adam!
Yes, it's a tough time at the moment Adam. Good shot of swans into the orange sky. Keep up the Waxwing hunt - i'm still looking too.ReplyDelete
Good luck with finding the waxwing.ReplyDelete
GIven the sort of weather you have been having I assume the heron is stood in the middle of a football pitch somewhere!ReplyDelete
Nice set of pictures.
Cheers and thanks for linking to WBW - Stewart M - Melbourne
Love that shot of the Whooper Swans in flight. Happy birding, Adam.ReplyDelete
Shame you cant get to see the Waxwings yet, hopefully they turn up for you, we've been spoilt here in North Wales, but great pics... love the WhoopersReplyDelete
Very nice images, I really like the Swans! (There is no such bird as a Waxwing. They are a figment of birders' imaginations....at least mine, apparently!)ReplyDelete
Marvellous silhouettes of the Whooper swans against that unusual coloured sky! Beautiful!!ReplyDelete
Not on your doorstep Adam but I was over in the North West with a mate a few days ago and had 45+ Waxwings at Arnside Knott, might be worth a visit?ReplyDelete

Good luck and have to say, great blog mate ... you have a new follower!
Adam, your swan shot is magnificent! Hope you find the waxwings, and I'm hoping they'll show up here, too.ReplyDelete
