I had a little bit of excitement the other night on my patch, in the form of a Yellow Wagtail. I hadn't seen one this year and had put off several attempts to visit a well known spot where I could probably have seen one. So I was delighted that one turned up rather unexpectedly just a few miles from home.
I managed to see one here in the Spring last year and thought that was a one off. Maybe I just need to look more regularly.
Anyway, it's a cracking little bird and one I'm grateful to for popping in while I was there. The pictures are not great, as I was desperately trying to hide behind a hedge and keep out of sight. Add to that the excitement that was induced, I was a little shaky with the camera.
I've only seen them once this year at Frodsham Marsh and never got a picture. Your pictures are really good.ReplyDelete
