Yellow Wagtail of the race thunbergi.

 A Tree Pipit at Bagworth Heath was a nice surprise. Hopefully it will stay to breed in this suitable habitat.
 Also in the same area a pair of Willow Tit were seen.
This evening a Yellow Wagtail of the Northern Fenno- Scandia race thunbergi was with the flock in the fields above Stoney Bank. It was 8pm and the bird was near the top of the ridge, so the photos are poor. Hopefully it will be there tomorrow and be more obliging.
Other migrants recently have been Swift, Sedge Warbler, Hobby, Common Tern and Cuckoo.
