Waxwings in action

February 11th, 2017

Not waxwings again I hear you say ! Having been absent for 4 years from the UK and being such a startlingly beautiful bird makes it hard to resist photographing them in these dark cold winter months.The waxwing images in this post were from a site where the birds are feeding on red berries an interesting contrast to the usual pink ones in previous images. I have tried to get more action shots, not easy when they are feeding deep in the brambles, and there always seems to be a branch in the way !!! I was pleased that my image of a group of waxwings from the previous post was featured on BBC Winterwatch, I must be doing something right !!
