This week I've mostly been... looking at Waxwings and Bitterns

Over the last week I have been looking at the local Waxwings on Hinckley Road/Westcotes Drive and watching the Bitterns down at the reed bed at Watermead CP North.
Talking about the Waxwings as usual the shopping area on Hinckley Rd has been a favourite haunt for these birds in the last ten years and currently at least 150 birds have been noted.
With the Bitterns at Watermead at least three birds have been present in the reed bed by crake hide for the last ten days and would imagine that more people will be coming this site due to the photographic opportunities!
