A flock of unusual birds hanging out near a Bradley Stoke roundabout has been causing excitment among local twitchers.
According to reports on a number of birdwatching websites [1, 2, 3], a flock of twenty or so waxwings has been sighted at various times over the last week in trees near the Aldi supermarket in the north of the town.
The RSPB website explains that the birds, which do not breed in the UK, are usually only seen in the north and east of the country.
