A second wave is spreading over the northern part of Holland. As self-found Waxwings are to be preferred above twitching we searched in Winsum, Baflo, Warffum, Den Andel and Eenrum. Twitching is second-best so we headed to Dokkum, had a quick stop at a Red-breasted Goose along the dike (which was flushed by a woman with barking dogs asking us if we were looking at Waxwings...)

But finally, in fading light, we enjoyed the impressive sight and sounds of a large group of Waxwings! (we counted 34).
