I have been hearing reports on TV that unusually high numbers of Waxwings have flown here from Scandinavia. I thought there was no chance I would see them here in Birmingham but I was wrong. I glanced out of the window and saw around 25 of these birds on a tree.
After they flew away I noticed this Chaffinch, a bird I rarely see. My partner took both photographs.
After two weeks the snow and ice have finally gone. The past couple of days have been very mild but the forecast is for more cold weather by the end of the week.
