Feeding Waxwing

Worthing, West Sussex

Spotted a small flock of Waxwing whilst driving back from Tesco at Durrington. It was raining and the light poor but thanks to a new flashgun that Carol bought me for Christmas, I managed to get a few shots - my best yet of this Scandinavian visitor!

Nikon D300 ,Nikkor 300mm f/4 ED-IF AF-S

Wow, great shot David. We had a flock here a few days ago, but they were too high up on that overcast day, even for a flash to illuminate them as well as your shot.

Excellent photograph. The red is so vivid, too. I know how difficult it is to click at the right moment with birds. V

This is an excellent picture I have heard they expect more of these birds than usual to arrive in the UK.
