Nick said: “I have seen’t waxwings in town for more than three years and the numbers in the country at the moment haven’t been as decent in the same amount of time.
“The early winter has triggered their arrival. They are brilliant birds with an abundance of character and personality. I must have seen about 50 of them.”
