The Corby Waxwing

They’ve been rare in the UK this winter and this one, a first-winter (probably a male based on clear-cut bib, intensity and width of yellow tail-band and number of waxy bits on the secondaries, although there is some overlap with young females), is the only one we’ve had in Northants. Thanks to Michael Tew for finding it!
