Patch tick!

About time we had a waxwing in Chard, they seem to have flirted with us on all sides this year but none, until today. At least four birds present in Snowdon Park mid-morning but they soon disappeared. Two came back though and were showing well in the trees in the south-east corner of the park, feeding on a (very) small clump of berries before flying off high to the north-west. Still managed a short video and some photos (last two courtesy of Dave Helliar):

This was a patch tick for me too. What a difference a bit of cold weather makes.
