Yellow Wagtail

I got a phone call a couple of weeks back about a pair of Yellow Wagtails which had appeared in our local area

These were a first for me and luckily I managed to get a shot using the epl5 and the 40-150 kit lens. Oh how I was wishing I still had the 75-300 I had on hire for the Ailsa Craig trip I can't explain how exciting it was to see these birds and they are sooooooo yellow



A form has been completed and sent to the local rarities recorder

Greg

Re: Yellow Wagtail

A very nice shot and well done for tracking down the birds. They're certainly well north of their normal range.

To me the arrival of our Yellow Wagtails is always the first real sign of spring.

Thanks for sharing.

Re: Yellow Wagtail

A lovely shot of this stunning little Wagtail They seem almost too colourful to be a British bird. We had a few of them passing through locally a few weeks ago but they have all gone now. Nice one Greg.
