30 Days Wild Day 20 - Pied Wagtail
The day started wet, but by mid morning had faired up. Knowing we were going with Kanyl to the garden centre which doesn't allow photography I had a walk along the bank of a stream which runs through the village. Took a number of shots and was happy i would have a blip.
So off we went to Carlisle, I took the camera "just in case". Before we went into the garden centre we had a walk down by the pond. They don't object to photos down there. The swan has cygnets although I am a bit concerned on our last two visits "Dad" hasn't been in evidence. I was also looking for the two large Terrapins Kanyl spotted in April 2016 - no sign.
As we were putting the cameras back in the car to drive nearer the centre (for the benefit of Kanyl's dickie legs) I noticed a Pied Wagtail flitting about. Ah a blip I thought! Just then it "dived" into a puddle and proceeded to have a good bath. I decided this shot was better than the ones you could barely tell was a bird as it had its head and much of the body under water.
