    Waxwings on Rowan berries

    I have a rowan tree just outside my bedroom window and was lucky to photo these birds coming in to feed.

    Nice photo Mulac. I've planted dozens of Rowans about the farm for the very reason you see here. I've had a massive fall of Fieldfares this year and they've been flat out in my hedges. Can't say I've ever seen a Waxwing about here though.

    Lovely photograph! There are currently a few waxwings around Poole and Bournemouth at the moment.I spotted a group, feeding on bushes in the carpark at Sainsbury's in Poole just before Christmas, and also spotted about 10 on one of the bushes in Herbert Avenue a couple of days ago.

    Must be kicking up a bit rough on the continent, to drive them over here??

    They are usually in Scotland most winters. In my garden they usually demolish all the berries over a couple of days then move on so you do not get a lot of opportunity to see them. Normally they arrive when I am at work but this time it coincided with the holidays so managed to get the photograph.
