The Waxwing invasion has finally hit Nuneaton with 3 birds in trees opposite the shop on Kingswood Rd opp the Pennine way jnc! not a bad find on the 30 sec walk from the house to get the paper!! No pics as the weather is bloody awful! The birds are coming to the same 2 Rowans as the birds in the 2010/11 winter invasion! that time they slowly built up from a single bird to nearly 200 over a few days!! Here's hoping!!

A txt from Tom Perrins on Tues morning letting me know of a Slavonian Grebe at Shustoke Reservoir had me cussing as the car had just gone in for a service,so had to wait till the Wed morning before i could get over!! The bird was duly reported Wed morning on BG's & off i set,arrived on site & eventually found the bird at the far end by the outflow showing down to less than 20ft at times!! The bird showed very well for about an hr until the dog walkers etc started arriving when it became much more unsettled & rather distant much to the disappointment of several photographers (my only gripe I could have done with better light!!)
