September 24th 2014 – Yellow Wagtail.


Yellow Wagtail, Whitbread Hollow.

Moderate NW breeze, with a dawn shower. Hirundines still on the move in numbers, about 800 in the air above the hollow this morning, although the passage of overhead migrants seemed to be lessened by the NW airflow. Blackcap and Chiffchaff still much in evidence, yesterdays estimates of Blackcap for the Hollow (based on ringing numbers) was 700. I’ve never seen such a density of this species in one place before. 3 Yellow Wagtail along with 2 Pied were on the playing fields. Nice to see these migrants on the ground as I’ve only seen Yellow Wagtails passing over until now.
