Driving back home on a beautiful calm evening I spotted the outline of the male partridge. Not atop a pear tree - in fact somewhat less romantically - perched on a pile of (putting it politely) animal faeces. It proved a good place to stop to take a couple of shots of the partridges, as on the other side of the road, a male yellow wagtail flew in and started feeding on the rows of recently cut grass. It moved a little bit closer and let out a few "shreep" calls. It was great to see the yellow wagtail as up to a couple of years ago they bred in the crops here. So fingers crossed they will do so again.
