Now that I have never seen - a waggie in a tree. Hadn't realised that previously.
Bad luck on the 50% reduction, Willpar :(.

The constant wagging always makes them look constantly on edge but Willpar's visitor looks relatively relaxed. :nod:

Had two early this morning. One came on the wall when I called to them. The other is rather nervous. But they don't stay very long. And the starlings are gobbling up their mealworms. Even though they are getting plenty of food.

I still haven't spotted one single wagtail! And they are supposed to be one of the common birds :eek:
I think now you are all talking about mythological birds, that's the only explanation :nod:

Not seen mine for a couple of days now. Don't seem normal to me, as they are usually here like clockwork once the season gets started. Early days I suppose, but just don't feel right.

Had one come in this morning, butterfly. Had a few mealworms and then left, never came back the rest of the day.

I was in our local town centre Christmas market, very busy indeed, when I saw a bird flying above and landing on one tall building. It caught my eye because it was quite dark already, past 4pm. Than I saw that unmistakable tail wagging and realised it was a pied wagtail :clap: , few of them in fact :woohoo: . Its a first time that I see them, so it made my day :D

Well spotted butterfly, I see them down my local shopping centre. I reckon where there are people there will be food. Crumbs dropped by people eating on the move.


I had two come in today. Left it a bit late but they had some nice mealworms. They never ventured far and made a few trips into the car park.
