Article summary

A major invasion of Waxwings reached western >Europe during winter 1995-1996. Belgium was however in the southern limit of this influx, with only +/- 700 birds, mostly observed at the end of january and during February. From mid-January to the beginning of April, 58 sightings were made in Brussels and in Wallonia, mostly little groups or isolated birds in the gardens. Only four groups exceeded 20 birds (max 50). The thirty last years dataa synthesis indicates this invasion was nevertheless the most important in Belgium since the 1965-1966 invasion.
