Waxwing (Bombycilla garrulus) feeding on berries - Warrington by 

The Waxwing is a Winter visitor to the UK and is usually found only in the east of the country where they come to escape the harsher weather on the Continent. It’s very unusual to see them so far west and this chap was part of a flock of aroung thirty feeding on berries in the trees surrounding a Car Dealership. Very unusual location.

I live in Warrington in the NW of England. I love all kinds of photography but especially Landscape and Macro. Still have a lot to learn but having fun doing so. Please feel free to comment.

    Fantastic, great timing!

  • Thanks Maisie, although they were so greedy there was plenty of chances to get one with a berry in the beak…
