Repeat Waxwings & Scoter


Yesterday, Thursday 25th November, at 8.30am I had a quick look along Yarmouth road and the junction with Harris Avenue and was delighted to first hear the beautiful trilling call of Waxwings and then see 6 of their number. They were initially seen in the large tree and they promptly flew down to the smaller berry laden tree. The Waxwings gorged themselves for several minutes before returning to the safety of the larger tree. A large lorry that drove past spooked them and they flew west over the houses of Harris Avenue.
Calling in at Filby Broad briefly at lunchtime (after a work visit to Martham Library) I saw the female Velvet Scoter and the male Goldeneye, again over the western end of Filby Broad. The female Scoter was frequently diving for food.
