My day can't get any better than this, I was treated to a fantastically close up view of roughly a dozen waxwings on the way into the forest park this morning. Fantastic! They hung about for a couple of minutes and then flew off.

So if you're out and about in the forest park this week keep your eyes open for a bird that is rare, roughly starling size with a distinctive crest on its head. Pale rosy in colour and a real treat to spot.

Have a good day!
