If it was ever going to happen..... really had to be this year. With the biggest and most widespread Waxwing invasion for decades, and perhaps ever, we have been hoping against hope that we'd get a fly-over or two (at least) in the garden this winter. We've been ramping down expectations now spring is almost here - BUT this morning "a sibilant peal of silver bells" came tinkling down from the poplars, and there were 18 of the little beauties feeding on our clump of Mistletoe! Result!

How Bohemian can you get?
