Waxwings

Chris phoned me on Friday evening and asked if I would like to join him at his house on Saturday morning and help try and catch the Waxwings that were coming to his garden. He had put apples out for them to feed on and had been told by a neighbour the birds had been visiting his garden for the last couple of days.

When I arrived at 08.00 he already had one in the net, and as more hit the net our first catch was 11 birds, 10 unringed and 1 control.

When I left we were up to 15 birds caught and had seen over 60 in the tree in the garden.
