Waxwings - extraordinarily pretty birds that turn up in some pretty ordinary places.
I counted 38 in the trees and bushes in the Homebase car park in Osterley at lunchtime.
They'd flown hundreds of miles from Scandinavia for the winter and ended up hoovering up berries at the corner of the A4 and Syon Lane.
No accounting for taste.
