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.
They are in Oakley Vale, Corby, saw a flock of about 20 eating Rose Hips off the hedges around Shopping Centre Car Park. Amazing site !!
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.

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.
