In search of a Wryneck.

Following yesterdays report of a Wryneck at Church Norton I set off  with all the gear to get some decent shots To cut a long story short, I failed to locate the target bird.

On returning to the car via the Churchyard I was pleasantly surprised to find a  species I didn't expect...a Tree Pipit (although there were 4 flyovers when searching for the Wryneck on the beach).

...and then there anything up to 20 Yellow Wagtails repeatedly flying up to the trees from an adjacent field.

Yellow Wagtail....busy preening

Yellow Wagtail 'birder' watching!

Balancing act.

A couple, or maybe 3 Redstarts also present showing well from time to time but could be elusive.

...A few Whitethroats and Blackcaps also's a female Blackcap

...shame about the Wryneck!
