Report of waxwings seen on February 16th 2020. Having heard of waxwing sightings in Keighley I decided to head over there myself given that it was local. Several people gazing into a tree raised my hopes of seeing these beautiful birds. 16 waxwings were in a bare tree and had been going back and forth to a nearby berry laden tree. I took many photos of them perched and hoped to get more of them feeding on the berries. However, a black and white moggy spotted the birds, climbed their tree and scared them off. I could have throttled that cat!! Although I hung around for some time the birds never returned. At least I was fortunate enough to see the waxwings and get some reasonable photos.
