Waxwing in the Valley of the Crows

Travelling through Cwmbran earlier this week I noticed several ornamental rowan trees supporting a plump juicy crop of white berries just awaiting a flock of marauding waxwing. A quick visit today turned up trumps, but just one individual of the said visitors from colder (or not so colder) climes was present. Difficult to get a decent photo when you have to poke your lens skyward in a residential area! See Gwent Ornithological Society sightings page for directions.
