Waxwings Come To Town































I caught with some Waxwings last week that have frequented an area near Muswell Hill in London. I captured these images in Grove Avenue and according to reports some 100-200 Waxwings have stayed in this area for about 2 months. Having visited the area this week I can understand why as the streets there are lined with Rowan trees and the Waxwings have had a plentiful diet of red berries. In fact when I returned yesterday I could only count one tree left out of hundreds with any berries left on it's branches.
