Its main source of food were the berries on the small pink sorbus tree next to Malpas House. It flew across the river occasionally towards Tesco's car park but always found its way back to the pink sorbus. How Waxwings sniff out such a small haven in a large city defies logic, but they somehow do it. This bird is a juvenile and shows just one small red spot of "wax" on its secondaries and of course no yellow in the primaries. That aside, this is still a stunning bird and always attracts attention.
