Jaded, do you see them a lot?  There seem to be good years and bad years, as with most birds from the far north but I can't remember when I last saw a waxwing - maybe ten years ago.

Aberdeen has Waxwings most years. Small numbers have been seen this weekend.
I'm in mid Norway and there are hundreds here making their way down from the North during the last two weeks.

Thanks, Hbunnet; I hope some of them make their way over here!

They don't normally do the West Coast. They descended and within a few hours all the Rowan berries were gone.

Is it OK to post from 4 weeks ago?  Found these under the wrong folder.   

Another fine coloured Starling.

I almost forgot the Coal Tit too! It is a very wasteful feeder, dropping seeds all over the place.

Jaded, I think that is a female Greater Spotted woodpecker - about the size of a blackbird or a little smaller?

Looks like a pied wagtail to me (odd angle).

Yes, you're quite right - I must have been very tired - I usually am!

Took us ages to identify this juvenile stonechat—our pocket guide only has pictures of the adults. [oops—see below]
