Waxwings

A Tweet from Alan (thedragonhunter) while I was sitting in Thornley Woods hide yesterday got me hot footing it to the club at Rowlands Gill where around 80 Waxwings he had found were periodically eating the berries from a Rowan tree. They were flighty; every time a car went past, they flew to what could be described as a perching tree. Then it was down again to the berries where a feeding frenzy took place. Redwings were also occasionally feeding in the same tree and even this made the Waxwing flighty. I only wish the light had been better.  Great to catch up with Alan again and we had a canny bit of crack.




Love the shapes they pull trying to get at the berries.
