Nobbut a few Wagtails

Clear skies and black clouds


Bright blue skies today with black clouds rolling in bringing showers p.m. Temperature taken a dive today with some snow forecast on high ground which usually means us. 3 small groups of Alba Wagtails over >S first thing this morning, 2 groups over Chapel Lane, a 3 and a 5 and 1 group over the High St of 6.
5 Mallard flew over the garage but these were probably birds that had roosted on Station Rd pond and a Heron came from the same area.
A bit of cold weather now should liven things up a bit and get those duck and swan reports flooding in.
Talking to a lady today who was going to see if Ogden would be interested in taking a pair of Mute Swans on, if they did this would be a tick for Qby unless anyone has had them previously.

There used to be a Mute Swan many years ago (1980's??) but not sure if it flew off or died. It will be in my notes somewhere!!!

Thanks Dave,I must have had one if it was in the eighties but couldnt remember, probably because I was only a young lad then (I wish)
