Sandy High Street WAXWINGS

20 WAXWINGS still in the garden of 101A The High Street, Sandy at 11:40 - apparently well settled. The birds are sitting in a high bare tree about 20 yards back from the main road most of the time, and are flying down to feed on some berry-covered bushes that are just out of sight behind the obvious double garage. Not particularly photogenic but a lovely sight in the bright winter sunshine (David Fisher)
