Yellow Wagtails arrive.

 Up to 9 Yellow Wagtails were in the field above Stoney bank this evening.
 Two had quite grey heads and could be females or winter plumage adults of the central European race flava. They may just be females of the British race flavissima. Which ever it is they are smart, but not as smart as the bright yellow males.
Willow Warblers are now singing around the res. There was also a Lesser Whitethroat singing and showing well on Stoney bank.

  1. Hi Andy, that looks like a female Blue-headed wagtail to me!
