Meole Brace - Park and Photograph!

More Christmas shopping?? With more snow and treacherous driving conditions, I wasn't going far! Meole Brace 'Park and Ride' not far from where I live and hopefully another date with Waxwings?

No shortage of Thrushes to start off with - predominantly Redwings and for the first five minutes - blue skies






Cloud cover set in but despite the grey cast to everything, there is something quite appealing about birds, berries (hmm, the few that were left that is!) and snow......













Song Thrush....






and Fieldfare.....






No prizes for guessing what arrived next!








An obliging wingflap to reveal the colourful wing pattern....






Some poses, blue sky present for a few moments!












A lovely couple....






The obligatory Berry shots.....









Including a 'toss'.






This little gathering looks worthy of a 'caption competition'?






With very few berries left on the trees, wouldn't it be nice if the Waxwings got in on the 'windfall' act? A pretty special moment was about to happen......
