Waxwings in Costessey, near Norwich, Norfolk

Whilst on my rounds in Costessey, near Norwich in Norfolk, I stopped off for a look at the Waxwings which have been feeding from a line of Rowans since late November 2016.
Almost all of the many thousands of red and yellow berries have been removed, and with the reduction in fruit, the numbers of Waxwings are now greatly depleted from their high counts of 50+ birds.  These three remaining Waxwings were feeding upon yellow Rowan berries, once these have been consumed, the birds will move on to new areas to feed.
The following photographs are from Costessey, near Norwich today, the 4th January
