Rare waxwing bird spotted on Clapham Common

A flock of rare waxwings have been roosting in Clapham Common.
About 20 of the birds were spotted in the common on Sunday by the Friends of Clapham Common bird recorder Simon Allday.
The birds come over to the UK from Scandinavia to feast on berries and fruit during the winter, with several of the birds spotted enjoying rose-hips in Clapham Common Westside.
It is unusual for waxwings to come to London, with the birds usually seen on the east coast of the UK, between Scotland and East Anglia.
