WHITE WAGTAILS in the extreme east of the county

Firstly many thanks to Graeme Smith for giving me the heads up on the WHITE WAGTAIL near Thorley Church yesterday afternoon. I got there about 4pm and wandered south through the churchyard, past the industrial units to the open fields. I quickly scanned the field to the sou'west of the church and and barely 40 yards away were TWO White Wagtails, an adult male and a 1stW together. I then circled the whole field returning to the same spot, but did not locate any other individuals. Both birds were still present when I left at 6pm, at approx TL475187. Well it would seem the westerlies have produced for us. I cannot wait to see who will locate the inevitable Buff breast that must surely follow! (Mike Harris)
