Waxwing


Waited for about 1 1/2 hours in the rain this morning for the reported Waxwing's at North Camp train station in Farnborough, Surrey. The rain did let up slightly giving me a chance to get some horrible record shots of this beautiful and exotic looking bird.


At about 11:00 am two groups of Waxwing, totaling 27 individuals settled on the tops of some Alder trees before gorging on the abundant berries along by the station. They seemed very flighty and nervous and 2 'photographers' immediately approached them, spooking them back into the Alder trees. Soon after two Mistle Thrush came through, their rattling calls scattering the birds in all directions. It began to rain and I left.
