Two garden Waxwings today

At first ligh, déjà vu, with the Waxwing back up on the Larch preening in the sun.  An hour later it was feeding with a second bird on the hips very close to our patio doors. Too close to photograph without scaring it away. With the sun shining I thought I'd try and photograph the eight Stock Doves that had been visiting the garden the previous week, but no such luck as the sky crackled to pheasant shoot gunfire; the garden was mostly birdless. Fieldfares and Redwings are abundant at the moment with many still visiting the garden and large flocks frequently flying over.
