|One of the 80+ Bohemian Waxwings on show in Norwich today.|
Far more glamorous, however, were a good-sized flock of (Bohemian) Waxwings in Norwich on the way home – they took a bit of pinning down, but my son Eddie and I finally saw about 80 birds in the Exeter Road area. Among the admirers gathered to watch them was artist Richard Thewlis, who was producing some very attractive field sketches in watercolour from life, despite the skittish nature of his subjects. Waxwings are not good at sitting still for too long.
Sadly, my creative skills don’t extend to such fine artistry, so these record shots will have to do instead.
|Hundreds may have been present around the city today.|
