Woodford Halse Waxwing

Couldn’t resist posting a few pics of the Woodford Halse Waxwing this afternoon. After the late autumn influx – chiefly ‘up north’ – and a few fleetingly fickle or fanciful fly-overs locally, this is the first twitchable individual in Northants this year. Clean-cut black bib and broad yellow tail-band sex it as a male and the reduced yellow feather edgings in the primaries age it as a first-winter. A big thank you to Donna Wise for putting the news out.
