Waxwings in Dalston

Field Paintings

Over christmas I spent a few hours sketching a flock of 14 waxwings at Dalston near Carlisle.

The conditions were very cold though it did warm up to -2 degrees at times! The birds were feeding on hawthorn berries and also on some large cooking apples which were still on an apple tree in a nearby garden.
