A beautiful flock of about 40 waxwings keep returning to a large apple tree that is still full of fruit in stourbridge, west midlands. Their song is peircing. They all sit facing the same direction when not savaging the apples. A great sight from my moms conservatory.

I have just seen three waxwings in my garden (Doncaster)Although i'm no expert bird watcher i had never seen this bird before and was interested to find out what type it was.Through this site i was able to do so. Many Thanks.

Today and yesterday saw 30-40 close up, in my garden munching on berries. Beautiful exotic looking creatures with a sweet chattering song (Utley, West Yorks) photos on flickr. First time for me was very excited.

I had about 25 birds feasting on a crabapple tree in the garden this afternoon. Not a bird I recognized or have ever seen before, but having looked it up the only thing they resemble are waxwings. We are on the outskirts of a small town in West Yorkshire not far from Ikley

I saw a flock of 20 of these beautifull birds in an ash tree enjoying the sun today in a cul de sac in the middle of Lincoln. My first sighting of this bird ever.

About a month ago there was a large flock in the tree outside my office in Uckfield, East Sussex but today I had real treat when just 2 visited a berry tree in my garden. They were only there for a minute or two but it great to see these beautiful birds really close. Herstmonceux, East Sussex

Update from Herstmonceux, East Sussex! After seeing just 2 yesterday, I realised that today there was a larger flock at the bottom of the garden - about 20-25. Their song is amazing.

Have seen about 50 Waxwings in a tree in my garden in Wokingham Berkshire.

We had a flock of about 30 wax wings feeding on our berry tree this morning in Bristol - brilliant. We had to search on the internet to find out what they were as have never seen them before. According to the info they don't usually come this far south west.
