Waxwings and snow

Waxwing in my garden

The weather has been bad since last weekend. Windy, rainy and the first snow has come. It feels like the end of an era. Or does the autumn of 2014 still have a few more surprises?

The Western Islands, Shetland and Orkney have been flooded with yanks and right now I am on the ferry to Suðuroy. Is there a lingering yank around?

I have been birding a little bit though during the week when not swinging the hammer. Still good numbers of Bramblings, Blackcaps, Robins, Redwings and Goldcrests around.

In Viðareiði a Tree Sparrow was present a few days ago. Might be the same as a month or so ago.

Waxwings have arrived and have frequented my garden daily for a week. What a nice bird 🙂

Millum Fjarða a few Pink-footed and a single Greenland Greater White-fronted Goose have joined the Greylags.
