Waxwing
Waxwings are spectacular looking crested birds with yellow and red on the wing that are seen in some numbers in Ireland most years. However this winter was an "irruption" year meaning that there were many flocks of birds seen around the country including one flock of over 100 birds seen in the area of the harbour, soldiers point and environs (January 2005). This was because of particularly cold weather in Scandinavia from where the birds arrive. Waxwings are about the size of starlings - they feed on pretty much any kind of red berry, particularly rowan, and although nervous, are usually fairly approachable.
