This lunchtime I got a text from my mate Andy saying he’d found a flock of 110+ waxwings on Hanover Way, I went and joined him just in time to see them scarper our heads in a spectacular trilling flypast. We followed them back to Cemetery Avenue, where they spent some time scoffing berries, joining with another flock and reaching about 200 or so in number.

I borrowed a camcorder from work hoping to get some video footage of them, but in my haste got one with an almost-dead battery! The short video above is the best I could get… I may try again tomorrow (if I’m not snowed in!).
