Hello, sorry it has been such a long time been caught up in other things at the moment but thought you would like to see what we saw yesterday just round the corner from where we live. There has been a very early and very large influx of Waxwings this Autumn all over Great Britain. Usually they don’t come in till nearer Christmas. These little birds have flown over all the way over the North Sea from Scandinavia and beyond. Here are some of the pictures I managed to get.
The count yesterday was 67 but we have heard of larger flocks around the country. Waxwings feed on mainly rowan berries as you can see, we have plenty of those up here at the moment but at the rate they are eating them they won’t last long. If you are out and about in your village or town and you see flocks of birds in the berry trees about the size of our Starlings take another look you may be a lucky as we were yesterday and see some of these beautiful birds complete with lovely crest. Till next time. Love
