Down at Tesco's Supermarket

It was good to get some shots of WAXWINGS down at Tescos this afternoon. Also nice to see 6 different types of Thrush feeding from the same tree.
I managed to get some close-ups of birds manipulating berries before swallowing them. In the past I have taken photos of Waxwings manipulating berries with their bifurcated tongues but it was interesting to see both Redwings and song Thrushes also turning the berries with their tongues too. I assume they must make sure they swallow the berries the right way round but they waste a lot of food in the process (Paul Keene).
