After driving many miles last week to photograph these beautiful birds, low and behold the Waxwing invasion reached North Wales, and of all places they were 10 minutes from home, on the exotic location of Deeside Industrial Estate!! On the site there are a lot of Waxwings favourite, Rowan Trees and it seems they had spent a lot of the week slowly stripping the berries. These are such obliging birds to photograph, and I hope you enjoy this selection, not only a pleasure to photograph, it was a great morning as it was the first time Sharon had seen a Waxwing.
After this successful morning, we returned a couple of mornings later, but they were no where to be seen and had obviously moved on. But it was not a wasted trip, as the bird life on this industrial site is plentiful and I still managed some varied shots.
