Waxwing Returns!

Following the huge influx of Waxwings from Scandanavia during the autumn of 2012, this individual was part of a large flock in Sheffield.  After being disturbed on a busy road it flew straight into the window of an adjacent house.  I took the bird, and after spending the summer in the deep freeze, it is back to something of its former glory.

It has been superbly mounted by talented taxidermist Derek Frampton of Hertfordshire; a nice memory of several sightings of these great birds during last winter.
