Needless to say it was probably the most undignified bit of birding ever when they report came through via twitter that there was a small 'Museum of Waxwings" in the rowan trees outside KFC on Newport Road of all bloody places.
I sat in work crying into a cuppa knowing they would be gone by the time I could get away...
Luckily I managed to knock off a bit early and get there just in time to see them in all their glory before they vanished.
I can now finally dust off my RSPB Waxwing badge I have been avoiding wearing as I hadn't yet seen one.
There's an epic video of the occasion on YouTube here which isn't mine.
