Other migrants.

Probable White Wagtail.

Two Yellow Wags. were with up to 32 Pied Wags on the meadows above Stony bank.

Dave found the first Common Sandpiper of the year on the dam.

This has also been in the wagtail field. It is a Reed Bunting, isn't it? It seems to be undergoing some strange head moult. The head is male , but the crown is still in winter plumage or even female. It also seems rather pale. Any suggestions or is it just The Thornton Bunting!

  1. Andy,that's strangest Reed Bunting I have seen! Might worth looking at Pallas Reed Bunting or it might be just a hybrid type?
