Comments: Little movement noted today due to weather conditions, I even had company... with Swallow, Pied Wags and Goldfinches sitting together on bare wire fencing waiting for the conditions to improve. The highlight through has got to be another Flava Wagtail (uncommon here ) my third in just over a week.
