Dull

Another dull day and Malcolm and I set out this morning without much hope of staying dry.  I took along a large umbrella 'just in case', but in the end, we didn't need it.  The clouds were scudding across the sky in the strong southerly winds which were doing their best to knock of as many Autumn leaves as it could.  Following news that there has been a large influx of Waxwings (Bombycilla garrulus) in recent days, we have been keeping our eyes well open on the lookout for them.  I have never seen a Waxwing but would love to do so.  Oh well, we'll keep looking at the berry-laden bushes and trees, ever hopeful.  These bright berries belong to the Guelder-rose (Viburnum opulus).
More about the Waxwings can be seen HERE.
