The other morning we decided to go for a sunrise and get away from the wagtail and vivid sunset theme. The nets were up just on first light and the first bird we caught was a ....... wagtail. A Grey Wagtail though.
Meadow Pipits soon started to drop in. These are actually very attractive birds in the hand. Never tire of handling Meadow Pipits and also the chance of an exotic pipit.
In the withy bed usual fare turned up including Blackcap and Garden Warbler. The first Garden Warbler of the year It was photographed in the ringing hut so it looks a little strange.
The winds look to be getting in the way over the next few days but we can finish with the sunrise that greeted us that morning..
Makes you feel good to be out of bed!
