Because of the really bad weather forecast for the east coast, we decided to postpone our weekend to Norfolk until the 12th January 2013. It was definitely the right decision ! The torrential rain and winds would have made birding very difficult and very wet ! Anybody wanting to join us in the New Year to get a good start for their year list, can contact us via the website at www.aquilabirdtours.com.
Despite the rain here we tried to get a bit of local birding in rather than stay indoors. These pictures were all taken on the Cholmondeley Estate over the weekend. We are fortunate enough to have regular access to both meres and the woods here and try to visit at least twice a week. As I am sure you are all aware we seem to have been invaded by the beautiful Waxwings and Cheshire is no exception. They have been reported at several different local sights and we were lucky enough to get some good views yesterday.
