Flock of around 30 birds which settled briefly on a tree. Could only get this photo from directly below. Thought they were starlings at first. Could they be Waxwings?

Thanks to all for confirmation

They are amazingly tame

They are amazingly tame sometime, you might able to get up close to them. I had a close encounter with a flock of 3 on Wednesday late afternoon. They sat about 5 feet above me in the country park's carpark ahving berries.
