Two ticks in two tics

Having driven around Blaydon mid afternoon looking for the birds reported on Birdguides what were the odds of finding a Waxwing on my own patch? There it was though sitting on the sparsest bush but one of the few remaining with any berries and the attitude suggested it wasn't going to move.
I didn't press the point and gave it some space but the bird remained there for at least fifteen minutes when GB found it for the Big Waters crew two of whom are currently basking in Portugal watching Azure winged Magpies and avoiding all this murk lucky buggers. Just as I turned to leave for home a calling Redshank lifted from the horse fields and headed off south back to the Tyne.
