Waxwing spotted in Leven
Monday, December 10, 2012
Keep a lookout for feathered winter visitors such as this handsome waxwing which was photographed in Leven over the weekend. Waxwings breed in coniferous forests in northern Europe. In autumn and winter they form flocks which spread south and west in search of food. The number of these birds which reach our shores varies greatly from one year to the next, and is largely dependent of food availability. Once here they rove in small flocks feasting on berries, so parks and gardens containing berry bearing shrubs are excellent places to look out for them!
