a lifetime burning

Not yellow but grey

Despite what your eyes may seem to suggest, this is the Grey Wagtail, not the Yellow Wagtail.  This one is the female, the males have a small black bib.  Unlike the Yellow Wagtail (currently away in Africa), the Grey is not a migrant.  At this time of year, the Grey likes to hang around puddles, even in urban environments.

I popped into Bristol earlier on to get our fresh coffee beans from the roasters.  They offer all first responders a discount and this morning their shop was full of police and ambulance staff, with one ambulance and 3 police vehicles parked outside.  Finding a anywhere to park was a real problem and in the end I just had to keep my fingers crossed that they don't also give a discount to traffic wardens.
