Waxwing Invasion

My local area and many parts of the UK for that matter has seen a large invasion of one of the most welcome of winter visitors, the Waxwing in the last couple of weeks...

I spotted a group of five of these stunningly beautiful birds, last Tuesday and after being seen off by the local Magpies, they returned in greater numbers (around 30) over the next few days.

Reports of Waxwings in Greater Manchester are growing daily and with what appears to be decent berry crops in the area, hopefully the birds will be around for many weeks to come.


  1. A wonderful shot!



  2. Great shot, waxwing have such a way of feeding theirselve...

  3. Hi Anthony,
