It was sat preening when I arrived and as usual it was rather distant. It made a couple of short hunting flights before gradually moving down the valley. I took a couple of records shots with the 500mm + 2x converter but it was still tiny in the frame.
There were 3 Waxwing by Forest Garden Centre in Darley Dale yesterday but I couldn't find them this morning but a flock of 30 Lesser Redpoll was the largest I've seen locally in recent weeks.
