Waxwings again

There have been 1-2 Waxwings again in Thetford by the sports centre, I keep getting brief views of them when I pass there.  They are very high up in some ash trees, and you'd never notice them if you just walked by as they're not perched on the very top of the tree, but 6-10ft down from the crown actively working their way through the branches, eating the ash buds which are a rich source of protein.  It must be nice for them to finally get a new food source since almost all the berries are depleted.

Otter and Dipper again...
 and a Muntjac emerges at dusk.
