Sunday 26th December
Awoke to frozen pipes after a record -14 degrees was recorded at Exeter airpor! Whilst defrosting the pipes, my next door neighbour was gripping me off as a Waxwing fed on apples on her patio! The first I knew was when I went to the garden to put more food out and our neighbour called out from the window to tell me the news!
Despite regular garden watching for the last few days, no further sign - gutted!
Boxing Day activity in the garden was impressive with 30+ Redwing, 5 Blackbirds and 2 Song Thrushes feasted on the apples!
