A Photographic Post - Pied Wagtail
Hi, Today's post is just going to be a selection of photos (sorry), these were all taken Yesterday (Wednesday 11th May) on the patch, but I have a bit of OU Course work that I need to get written so have very little time to compose a post that would do things justice. Suffice to say it was grey and wet all day and apart from the photos and company of some 300 House Martins and around 100 Common Swift the only other passage bird was a Dunlin.

This post does contain some of my best photos ever (Hopefully you'll agree but the Hobby photos are pretty special!) and it goes without saying this is a VERY photo heavy post (48 including the title photo).

Some of these are interesting (I think) crops and it should be noted it was overcast all day and raining heavily at times. I've tried grouping each bird in it's own section for ease.
