The Waxwings of Woburn

I had spent part of the morning trying to find some Waxwings around Milton Keynes - we have lots of Rowan trees laden with berries so surely its only a matter of time.
When news that the flock at nearby Woburn had risen to 105 it proved too tempting to ignore. 
The whole of Leighton Road seems to be planted up with pink berried Rowans and these are obviously a big favourite with our Scandinavian visitors.
I only found 18 birds but Hey with quality like this quantity is unimportant.                                                                                                   


  1. Such exciting birds to see aren't they.

    I wish a few would drop into my garden lol

  2. Surprised you haven't popped up to see these Keith. You'll get some great photos.
