Snow fell on Blyth nearly all day today but I braved the elements and headed out through my local crem and onto the Blyth estuary.
Plenty of waders about in the mud, a few big flocks of mixed finch mostly Goldfinch and Chaffinch along with a few Twite.
In the reed beds several buntings feeding on grass seeds including some very friendly ones.
Then as the snow came down really heavy and light all but gone I found these WAXWINGS!
I counted just over 50 but they are very mobile and were flying all over the area searching for food and roosting sites I think.
They appeared to settle in the tops of the tall trees behind Travis Perkins.
