Waxwings

Yesterday, whilst out working with some of the rangers from the National Trust’s Souter Lighthouse and The Leas, we spotted a large flock (100+) of Waxwing. These incredibly cool looking winter visitors with distinctive Mohican tufts are a favourite of mine!

Large numbers can arrive in the UK when there is a shortage of food in their Scandinavian breeding grounds. So seemingly, this year and into the next, with the abundance of berries available there could be (hopefully) more encounters to come…
