Yellow Browed In Barnsley

A quick visit to Wombwell Ings to see the overwintering Yellow-browed warbler was worth it; the bird was found very quickly and showed well a few feet away.






Cold Weather Visitor

This lone Fieldfare arrived in my garden as it snowed heavily, feeding on nothing but apples from dawn to dusk for 5 days.  It vanished the day the snow thawed.






February Brambling

A couple of shots of a Brambling at Titchwell, Norfolk in February:

Not a Waxwing Winter

This single Waxwing at Sprotborough seems to have got the wrong message and made the journey to the UK this winter - one of only a few in the country at present.  Not surprisingly, it has found a nice cotoneaster to hang around.








Thanks for looking!
