There was recently a small flock of thirteen waxwings quite local to home for a couple of weeks in North Wales . They had become a popular attraction and even made front page of the local press. So I called in one late afternoon, to find the birds occasionally flying down to the rowan tree, being viewed by a small crowd and in some some wonderful low sunlight. I expect this will be my last session with the waxwings which no doubt will be departing northward soon. It has been a great winter for them across the UK and they are always a pleasure to photograph. For those interested the following photos were taken with the Canon 50D body.Lucky photograph of the brief session was to catch one of the birds hovering off the end of some berries, having just plucked one while in flight.
