The turkey was in the oven and the presents were unwrapped, what better time for a quick walk down to New Hythe. We only went a short way into the country park from the Brook House entrance before we found a Waxwing tucking in to some apples growing wild on the side of the ice covered track. As ever, the light was difficult but I managed to get a few half decent shots. On the way back we heard the unfamiliar but recognisable trill of more Waxwings and saw about a dozen birds in the top of a Hawthorn bush, but they flew away in a westerly direction almost immediately. Carol had never seen one of these lovely birds, she has now, what a Christmas cracker!
