This was taken yesterday In North Wales. There is only one tree left with food on it so if the birds hang around they are a good subject to seek out. I was a bit concerned as there were quite a few people very close to this tree and it may be that the birds would have preferred a little more "space" to be comfortable.

Great image. Some Waxwings are on Cannock Chase at the moment but I have not seen them yet. Hope to get a shot nearly as good as this one , top class work.

The light is beautiful, but I fear all the best of the detail is in the berries and not the bird Sad
