Waxwing: Mothers Day Waxwing, what a treat!

Me and Dawn went up to Carnforth and decided to treat ourselves to a MacDonald's  breakfast on the way.

On the way in to the fast food restaurant I spotted a small flock of birds high up in a tree outside the adjacent hotel and said to Dawn 'Oh they may be Waxwings' then after stuffing out faces with hash browns I cam out and took a closer look.

They were indeed Waxwings, around 30-40 all showing well and flying right past me to get to a berry bush at the back of the place. Brilliant surprise.
