My Birdguides text message told me there were Waxwings at Ashington. They are always worth a photograph but the weather has been lousy and there seem to have been other things to do (including celebrating our wedding anniversary - 7 years without an "itch" as Julia puts it). So I'm sitting at my PC, working on photos from Canada and school governor stuff, when I look out of the window towards my neighbour's tree smothered in large berries (or are they a type of crab apple?) and see 8 Woodpigeons descend and start to strip the fruit. Were they pretending to be Waxwings for me as I couldn't get to Ashington?
And one also appears to be starting a juggling act... ...
