Waxwings Scarborough - 11th January 2018

Two Waxwings are favouring the cotoneaster berries marking the car park boundary of B&Q in Scarborough. It has not been a good year with very few being observed around the UK. Yesterday, I managed to touch base with them, but in very challenging light HERE. This afternoon, the light improved a little, so I had to go back! The Waxwings do disappear behind the retail units but reappear to continue feeding, totally oblivious of the traffic on the busy A64 or pedestrians!

You must have some special food up that way I haven't seen a waxwing in years, certainly never photographed one.

Not really Mike, just a few meagre berries! Not enough to sustain many Waxwings. Nice to see though!
