Which numpty was that then....

Just a small rant. About 3.30 birdguides showed 48 hawfinches in Hayes! Well, a goodly number, but there have been 90 in Surrey so. Finishing my last call at about 4.40, quick nip out, tap the address into the sat nav and off through the early rush-hour. and....
Arriving at the junction, there were 48 medium-sized birds on an aerial. 48 waxwings nice birds, showing really well and coming down to a cotoneaster bush, but not hawfinches. Ah well, you can but dream.
Adding insult to injury birdguides had corrected to waxwings by the time I got home, but no apology. At least I knocked off work early!
