Local Patch Waxwings

Managed to get out for a couple of hours this afternoon and upon hearing there was some Waxwings along the cycle path at Rawcliffe Ings I headed off there, as I pulled up at the lay-by a small group of them flew over the car and across to the Park and Ride site, I got back in the car and drove back round there and found 20+ sat in a small tree with one or two dropping down to a small berry bush below, five minutes later they all headed back to the Ings, I however decided to head over to Rufforth Airfield where a couple of interesting Gulls were seen this morning, there were no Gulls on the Airfield but I found a gathering on an adjacent field, a bit distant and viewing over a hedge was not the best but I managed to pick out an interesting looking Gull I thought was maybe good for 1st winter Caspian, maybe the one seen earlier in the day although hard to say for sure.
Waxwings at the Park and Ride site, not the best light

a bit distant but an interesting looking Gull
