waxwings

Sheila called asking me what were the birds in our garden. To my amazement there were 20 plus waxwings greedily eating berries on the trees. They seemed ravenous and within a few minutes were off searching for the next bush.

I have never seen waxwings before and so was quite excited. When I checked with London Birdwatching (me@leaman.org.uk) there had been other sightings in the north London area. Clearly bad weather had brought these birds from the Arctic and Scandinavia to Britain where they are quite rare.

  1. Oddly enough there were 63 sightings in London including 2 sightings of large flocks at Snaresbrook Primary School. Is Esme a twitcher?
