A trip to Norwich today, Sunday 23rd February revealed a fine bonus in the form of a Waxwing seen along Ber Street feeding on apples in a tree in a disused yard formerly used by "The Pot Company" I didn't have any optical aids with me, although the Waxwing was quite close, shielded by a metal fence the bird appeared to be a female or immature as it lacked the waxy red in the wing giving its name. It was quite content to sit there and then start feeding from the apples. It might remain here for a while yet as there were still around at least 8 apples left. Great to see, particularly this winter, when they have been so scarce.
