Swales Moor

Ringby Lane this afternoon mainly in search of butterfly's but came up trumps with a bird !
Plenty of corvids, L B B Gulls and 1 Common Gull on the top.

1 Whitethroat below - poor shot as it dived off into a bush

2 wagtails along the lane one of which turned out to be a flava (Yellow) Wagtail juvenile with a juv Pied Wag. As I approached they headed off into the dried up muddy field where there were anything up to 40 wagtails, nearly all juveniles and all 'pied ' except one.!  I relocated the Y wag with some difficulty and eventually got one or two distant record shots which are probably not that good but will see if any are worth posting on the blog later.
It was still in the field when I left around 16:30 but it could be tricky to find in the muddy furrows and undulations.

Ta lads. Now is the time things start coming through. First thing in the morning especially after overnight rain (early worm gets the bird!!!!!!) or after some rain showers during the day !

Nearly time for some juv Cuckoo's as well - get them nettle beds stocked up !!!!!
