Grey Wagtail on the Don– the other day we were also lucky enough to get a good view of the lovely, lively Grey Wagtail which frequents fast rivers and streams. In winter some move to more lowland rivers but this one was busy flitting along the river, landing and pecking at midges and insects in the shallow water, as Grey Wagtails do. Now on the amber list so at some risk, it is so good to see these delicate birds, with their long, bobbing tail and bright yellow underside
, in the middle of a heavy industrial area. Sometimes they even come to our garden pond in winter. Conditions: Much rain on a
mild day. Temperature: Max 11- Min 5c.
