WAXWINGS.

Winter 2008 saw a big migration of Waxwings from Europe and Scandinavia into the U.K.

Opportunities for photographing them occurred at many places. Car parks at supermarkets were a favourite

as the surrounding gardens are often planted with Mountain Ash (Rowan) Trees who's berries are a favourite food

and in particular the yellow ones. This migration happens when the weather on the continent gets extremely cold

so keep a look out for them if it happens.

I took my pictures at various locations around the North West Lancashire area and a few even from my front door in Heysham.
