In case you couldn’t identify all of my feathered friends from these pictures here they are again with captions.
The waxwing migrates to the UK from Scandinavia in late winter/early Spring if the weather is bad in its home territory. It is a treat to see them feasting on Rowan berries or when I saw them at ANR in March 2017 (my one and only sighting) on wild rosehips. The baby goldfinch is being fed by the adult above it on our apple tree. I didn’t expect anyone except an experienced bird watcher to recognise the ferruginous duck. Again this is a once only sighting (ANR April 2019). It was one of a pair – see picture (of the female) below. According to Wikipedia they are from ‘Eurosiberia’ and the name derives from the colour of rust (Fe – iron, ferrous). Now you know more than I do about this foreign duck. 😉
