That’s what I was in,when I came across a flock of Waxwings in Morecambe,Lancashire,NW England this a.m. 15th Nov 2012.
They come to the UK in winter from Scandinavia.Mostly only a few,but in some years there are “irruptions” of hundreds of birds.At the moment in NW England,there are over 700 reported in groups of up to 100. This was was in a group of 70+. These were the first I’d seen for 5 years.

The Bohemian Waxwing (Bombycilla garrulus) is a member of the waxwing family of passerines. A sleek bird, 18–21 cm long with a pointed crest, it travels in large, nomadic groups with a strong, direct flight. It breeds in coniferous forests throughout the most northern parts of Europe, Asia and western North America. As the Cedar Waxwing inhabits only North America and the Japanese Waxwing only Asia, the Bohemian Waxwing is the only member of this family whose range circumnavigates all the continents just below the sub-Arctic latitudes.
