The mobile went off this afternoon with a excited 'better half' on the other end.
"Guess what I'm looking at at the bottom of our street.? " What? gis a clue? my reply.
" We've got Waxwings (12) " ya kidding are you sure ? I asked.
" Oh aye" the sound of them trilling away was what first alerted the better half, and her daughter has confirmed they had crests ( non -birdy type but has some interest)... They didn't hang about and soon moved off towards the centre of South Shields. What could I say...except lucky gits at this time of year.!
