A group of avid bird watchers congregated beside the Scout Headquarters to capture
photographs of our latest arrival, a flock of Waxwings.
Waxwings are well known as irruptive winter visitors to the UK. They breed in
the remote northern pine forests of Scandinavia and Russia. In autumn and winter they feed on berries and it is the relative abundance of these that determines how far the birds have to travel to find food. Variable berry crops from year to year result in varying numbers arriving in the UK.
