I was working in the garden this afternoon when a large flock of some 400 waxwings arrived. They are quite trusting and happily fed on hawthorn berries as I stood a few metres away…
Part of the biggest flock of waxwings (sidensvans) in the garden today, around 350 birds!….seriously distracted all day by these photogenic arctic “parrots”! Feeding on yew (barlind), hawthorn (hagtorn), elderberries (svarthyll) and guelder rose (krossved) berries…
