    That one about salt on a bird's tail? Nonsense! Snow doesn't work either.

    OK, so they're not tulips. They're scilla buds. But I couldn't help humming the tune as I watched this Waggie tiptoeing through.

    I was walking along a sandy beach. It was moving about at the top of the beach and then perched on a stone ,maybe to have a better look at me.

    Heavy crop in poor light: 1/160th at ISO 2000 hasn't quite frozen the right foot. It was a very pleasant surprise to see the bird feeding in the pool of rainwater on our electricity substation roof. Grey Wagtails have frequented the same place in the past, so my ambition is to get a shot of both...

    Just to clarify what I said earlier: the species I normally get here at home is Grey Wagtail. This bird is a Pied Wagtail, the first I've seen (here at home, that is) in 37 years. Very pleasing. Thank you for your comments on my pictures, stay safe and well, and good birding! John

    Thank you everyone for your very nice comments on my image of a peacock butterfly.Last time I went out birding, I took many shots of a wheatear foraging among the sea-wrack at the top of a beach. But there were other birds too, like this wagtail.

    Further along the river, I managed to look down through a gap in the trees and suddenly a Pied Wagtail flew across and landed on a rock. Couldn't resist trying for that one LOL. A big crop though.
