This morning started off very cold but with a beautiful red sky. After the school run I could hear the familiar twittering of some Waxwings. High up in a tree were just 3 beautiful Waxwings preening themselves in the morning sunshine, previously I have flocks seen of between 30 – 50 of these sweet birds.
Several parents passed wondering what on earth I was doing just staring up at a tree, one or two stopped to talk and discovered the pretty little birds that had caught my attention. Unfortunately no DSLR with me this morning, fortunately though I had have my trusty compact camera in my pocket so was able to combine my love of photography with a spot of bird watching.
Approximately the size of a Starling, Waxwings fly from Scandinavia to the UK for the Winter to feast on Hawthorn, Rowan and Cotoneaster berries. The birds have the most wonderful high pitched call Waxwing audio
