Pied Wagtail Preening
It seems last week's frost was a one off, with the forecast for the rest of the month set for near to or slightly above average temperatures. Not many highlights from the past week to share, with a rare flyover from a pair of Mute Swans possibly the most notable. The Buzzards are regularly out when the blue skies appear and the Sparrowhawk still pops through every now and then to see what's about. The Grey Wagtails which were regular seem to have moved on but we're never short of Pied Wagtails, one of which was too busy preening to fly away while I was taking pictures!
I never get tired of photographing the Goldcrests, they are still coming in daily and are a real challenge to follow and photograph. Fortunately one sat at the top of the shrub in front of me for long enough to get a few more nice shots!
