Waxwings in Preston

Reading various websites it was apparent Waxwings had arrived also in Preston city centre in good numbers this year, so in the hope of seeing some more after the previous weeks visit to Barrow I visited Ribble Bank Street where there are quite a few Rowan trees covered in berries, and after a bit of tracking down found a group of maybe twenty birds. But unlike the flock from Barrow these birds where quite skittish and only came down to the berries for short periods and the slightest disturbance sent them off into the higher tree tops. Nevertheless it was great to see them in such an urban environment and i managed some shots in what was a quite gloomy morning.
