Spent the morning getting freaked out by the light show from the NationGrid lorries opposite the house. They're re-laying gas pipes through the whole estate so the traffic can be a bit chaotic at times but the National Grid boys are throughly professional and very well organised.They didnt miss a beat even during the heaviest rain this morning. It was a great relief when Dave Hutton alerted me to some Waxwings sighted on the other side of Nuneaton.The rain had eased by mid day so it was a relief to have an excuse to get out of the house. There was no sign of the birds when I arrived but it wasnt too long before 3 Waxwings flew in to a tree quite close to a heavily berried Rowan. The Waxwings were very wary of the 3 Blackbirds ans single Redwing which were also feeding on the berries. After 2 failed attempts to land in the Rowen the birds flew off, but I doubt if that will be the last of them with so many berries left.
