A terrible picture, taken from the other side of Felbrigg Lake to avoid disturbance, of adult Grey Wagtail, feeding young in August 2014
This lunchtime a Grey Wagtail flew up The Street, momentarily perching on roof tops before disappearing into the mist. This could have been a migrant bird or more likely, one of the Felbrigg birds – they successfully bred there this year, the first time in a number of years. Pied Wagtails are a common sight in the village but Grey Wagtail, which have a preference for fast flowing streams, are easily identified by their grey backs and yellow underparts. Their call is also pretty distinctive once you get to know it.
