Berry Head - Waxwings

Call from Mike Langman to say that a Berry Head ranger had located a waxwing near to the fort.

On arriving I met up with Mike and who beileved there were 2 on site which we were soon able to confirm.

Another 2 birds then flew in making a total of 4 birds! They were very steady, taking up residence in a bush near to the path while Brixhams entire population of dogs walked past.

They departed flying towards Brixham at about 1335hrs

Some shots below and video showing them 'trilling' that I mangaed to capture, some more I imagine from Mike later.
