Flick and aflutter

Have your say

This waxwing, spotted flicking a rowan berry into the air, was among a flock of more than 350 that descended on a supermarket car park in Hessle Road in Hull.

Other large flocks have been seen in York as more of the birds arrive in the UK from Scandinavia looking for berries. RSPB wildlife advisor Ben Andrew said: “Because they are winter visitors most of us are probably not as familiar with them as we are with our resident birds, so that just adds to the excitement when they do start to arrive.” Picture: Richard Willison/RSPB
