Ringstone Res'r

Late morning visit produced 2 Yellow Wagtails, probably the same 2 found by DF the other day. One very bright individual and a much duller bird with it. They were on the shoreline for a while but kept moving off into the fields nearby. Y wags a really good bird for Calderdale in recent years and it was good to see these two feeding rather than the usual flyovers.
