Waxwing sends Poynton All of a Twitter

Postby SK121NZ » Mon Feb 26, 2018 5:09 pm

Anyone else notice that Poynton has become famous via Twitter 8-) since the first sighting of a quite beautiful migratory bird about a month ago.
The pictures below are from the comfort of my lounge window today. We have noticed hordes of 'twitchers' (birdwatchers) turning up daily since to see this rare visitor.

No, they are genuine visitors and frequently seen on Princes Incline.

Then once again 'Wow, that's amazing'.. All we get are the fat pigeons and squirrels digging up the lawn.

It's all in the bird food you give them!
