I know this doesn't really add anything to the whole Waxwing irruption story and I almost didn't post it, but then again I suppose at least it's a record of their visit to Monmouthshire.
I can live with seeing it John -:). Especially as the ones I have seen have only had leftover berries on the ground to feed on, so nice to see them in trees with berries.

I want some - Rowan, and Waxwings!!!, don't mind if I have the red, yellow or white berries John, just need to get them growing in my garden. They are such voracious feeders, must be brilliant to watch.
Lot to learn
In reply to gaynorsl:
Thank Bob and Gaynor. I guess we're coming to the end of berries now everywhere. I can't believe I chopped down a Mountain Ash in my back garden that I had grown from a seedling and I thought it was too big. Could have had my own Waxwing feeding station!
I've just realised that I didn't amend the last frame that I pasted from the Cardiff video but as its already had 36 views and comments from the US and Croatia I think I might just leave it!
In reply to john_l_uk:
Great additional vid JL ... wish my ornamental Rowan-in-a-large-pot had that many berries ... trouble is that they need acidic soil & I live in chalk quarry so cannot plant in ground!! I live in hope!
