This autumn holiday we spent our family week at Texel, a good place to be in autumn for bird migration. I was hoping to find a rare bird so set out when I had the opportunity but had to do with two Little Buntings, Richard's Pipit and Lapland Bunting.

At De Koog two immature Waxwings were reported and together with Sven we visited them. Both birds are immatures (first calendar) as they only have the horizontal line on their primaries and not the arches like adults do. The right bird is a male as the throat patch and bandit mask reaches farther then the left bird, making that a female.
