BBC Wildlife Magazine - Photo of the month August 2013

August 3rd, 2013

The winning image was taken on a cold morning at Oakington with up to 70 birds perched in a tall tree. The birds would come out of the tree, land on the bushes and quickly eat the berries before returning to the their perch. They stripped the bushes of berries over a week and then moved on. Photographing these beautiful waxwings was a very exciting experience even though it was minus 5 degrees.
