A Mixed Bag

A disappointing day that was spoilt by rain left me with only a few images. Nothing more frustrating, when you've been looking forward to getting out with the camera and then it rains. Still, there were a couple of dry spells. Just not as many as the rain filled ones.

First up, a Grey Wagtail that was very busy indeed along Clough Brook. This is a female and no doubt there will be a male about too, as they'll be ready to nest very soon.

Lesser black-backed Gull

On the beach at Pensarn, while waiting for a very elusive Iceland Gull, we were treated to a few glimpses of Meadow Pipit. We heard many others, but this one dropped down in front of me.

  4. My favourite is the grey wagtail. I see many pied wagtails but few grey ones.

  9. You got some great shots anyway though. Envy the flight shot! It feels wrong to complain about rain here or in Oregon, because we need it so much, but it sure can spoil a days plans that is for sure.
