Birdwatch shows waxwing numbers taking flight

AN EXPLOSION in sightings of waxwings was recorded during the RSPB’s Big Garden Birdwatch 2017.

Over the last weekend in January, and for the first time including the Monday, more than 3,500 people in Scotland counted 626,184 birds in the 38th year of the survey.

Waxwings are regular visitors to our shores and flock in much higher numbers once every seven or eight years when the berry crop fails in their native Scandinavia.
