Pied Wagtail- this lovely, common wagtail can be seen in many different habitats. My mum’s mum used to call them ‘little clergymen’ because of their black and white patterns. They roost in big numbers in city centres, drawn by the ‘storage heater’ warmth of built-up areas. There is a big roost in the bushes near the Odeon in Sheffield. Here is a Pied Wagtail feasting on insects disturbed by my brother-in-law Mike as he ploughed in East Sussex yesterday. Conditions: Another lovely sunny day, before the rain is due to arrive. Temperature: Max 16- Min 7c.
