Diver and Waxwings
Early morning today, I saw the immature Great Northern Diver fishing in Hamilton Dock along the far side by the ships, continuing to swim and dive in a productive channel running parallel to said ships docked along the south end of the dock. The weather was perfect with plenty of sun and good light but sadly the Diver didn't come close during the period of observation. Driving around the Rigbourne Hill area of Beccles, initially failed to produce the sought after waxwings, until I drove over to St Paul's Close and saw 2 Waxwings sitting high up in a single tree. Walking into a green area of a child's plyground I managed to view them for 10 minutes before they flew east over the roofs of the houses.
