Friday 22nd November 2012, walking out the door of the house to head off to work and "Bang" just across the road 2 Waxwings in a neighbours Rowan Tree. Mad dash back in doors for Camera, totally unprepared, late for work as it is, managed a few quick frantic shots before flushed by Blackbirds. Just as I was getting back into the car, they came back to the same tree and commenced feeding. I was back at the house for 11am, as we were off to Wales for the weekend. A stunning morning, bright warm sunshine, no sign of Waxwings but suddenly a superb male Brimstone butterfly in the garden, sunning on the Ivy. Another manic dash for the camera. Fortunately it stayed for about 15 minutes before flying off and disappearing. The latest Derbyshire record by 12 days. So, two surprises in a morning, if only everyday was like this….
