Really nice photos Peter. I wanted to find some waxwings on mistletoe in poplars - bit of a niche ambition! - seeing how it grows in such profusion on these trees. More natural food source than the cotoneaster they seem to like best, and maybe the last berries available this late in the season?

Seven Chiffchaffs along the Usk from Brynich to Brecon. Three at Brecon STW were probably birds that had wintered there, but two in riverside trees near Brynich and two in Island Field were surely new.
