The third of a series of 6 shots of a Bohemian Waxwing (or just Waxwing in the U.K.) partaking of a little light lunch. Having failed in his attempt to get the berry of his choice,he has a quick check of the area.
One of a group of 70+ seen on 15th November at White Lund industrial estate in Lancaster,NW England.
Every few years large numbers of these birds arrive in the U.K. from Scandinavia.2012 is turning into such a year.It affords many people a good opportunity to study these beautiful creatures.
