Grimsbury Reservoir: yellow wagtails

A quick post with pics from this morning: bright sunlight and great conditions for yellow and pied wagtails, extremely active feeding amongst the cattle, also starlings doing likewise.  Swallows and house martins swooping over the cattle too.  On the reservoir itself, the dunlin and little ringed plover remain, joined by a mute swan.  Two juvenile common terns appear, but not the adult - it can't be too far away.  A grey wagtail feeds along the concrete shoreline.  Two swifts join the hirundines (swallows and martins) for a while.

yellow wagtail - I'm getting closer to them!
