I saw on a bird reporting site, Birdguides that there was one seen in Halkirk today. I am a Waxwing Fanatic and had a similair thread last year.

Anyone seen one yet??? I am itching to get out and look, only problem is it is dark outside.LOL

A photo of one can be found here.

Have never managed to catch a site of this bird although we did manage a site of a Shreik a couple years back.

Lizz, they are one of the most beautiful birds I have ever seen. They are funny looking things as well..In 2004 there was an invasion and flocks up to 1000 were seen in Morayshire. I hope you get to see one this year.:D

I saw my first Shrike on Noss Head about 5-6 weeks, it was a Gret Grey and it was a comical looking bird too.

Thought you'd like to know there is a waxwing in Watten today (9/12), it was eating my rosehips at 10.30am. I've got a few pics of him/her but hoping it will come back and pose some more. I do hope so.
