Waxwings and a wealth of birds at Maple Cross
I decided to check out yesterdays report of waxwings and they were right on cue in the Poplars behind the shops,they were mobile to and from fruiting trees in nearby Chalfont road. I rang Lewis and he soon arrived from Stockers,grilling these birds we were entertained by a pair of blackcaps and Red kite and Buzzard spooked them on occasions,not to forget thrushes mistle,song and redwing,after a while we returned to Stockers to photograph two drake smew,of note three kingfishers and coal tit,before returning to the glorious waxwings
