Waxwings

A group of Bohemian Waxwings, known as a “museum”, was spotted in Lickey End recently.

The birds were part of a mass influx, called an “irruption”, to Britain after a big freeze reduced available berries across northern Europe.

These waxwings were photographed by Village reader Graham Wilkes in the Meadow Vale Road area, where they had gathered to strip a rowan tree of its berries.
