30.04.21 Blue-headed Wagtails

A bright afternoon with a light and meandering S and SE wind.

A brief afternoon seawatch with Chris Ball where the standout birds were a single flock of 49 Black Tern, 2 Little Gull and an Arctic Skua. I could only dig out 3 Willow Warbler in the Belle Tout area before heading to West Rise, where I found the days star birds in the form of not one but two beautiful male Blue-headed Wagtail associating with a tiny flock of 3 flavissima Yellow Wagtail. My first Hobby put in a brief appearance putting the frighteners on the c100 Swallow & Martin gathered over the lake
