Pied Wagtail


30 September, 2022

A bright clear start to the day meant I was not optimistic about seeing too many birds but the morning proved that not to be the case, even though most of the birds were Chiffchaffs! Highlight was undoubtably the pair of Dartford Warblers on the set aside, they showed well as they moved across the scrub. (RP)
