More Waxwings

Nice but wet morning at Soddy, I donned the Waterproofs and Wellies and had a good wader through the site., 1 Waxwing heard calling half a dozen times then found in a hedge by houses with Redwing and Fieldfare at 9am. The Thrush's all moved on but i didn't see the Waxwing go with them, although there was no more call after this so it must have gone with them.
A nice blocker got back, my first site record but the second for Soddy.
Due to the weather being so bad i never took my camera, or my scope, first time ever probably, typical really.

Loads of Ducks, Goosander, Goldeneye, Pochard, Wigeon, Mallard and Teal. The Teal then moved to the Smaller pools.

80+ Common snipe, couldnt find the anticipated Jack Snipe unfortunatly.

Plenty of Goldfinch, Long-tailed Tit, Redpoll, Siskin, Tree Sparrow, Reed Bunting, Yellowhammer and Skylark.

P.s its been a quiet week, due to work commitments, and its dark before and after work now...
