Waxwings are winter visitors to Scotland.  They breed in Scandanavia, and some of them spend the winter here - which shows how harsh the winters must be in Scandinavia!

They are usually found in small flocks, feeding on berries, rowan berries being a particular favourite.

They will hang around a location until the supply of berries is exhausted, and then move on.

These particular waxwings were in The Figgate park near Portobello, Edinburgh.

Unfortunately they kept to the very tops of the trees, so the photographs aren't great.
