A trip out to Colyford Common for a Mega Bird today an Eastern Yellow Wagtail with my mate Andy Bond . We got there just as it started to rain with thunder and lightning so we sat in the car for a while hoping that the bird would turn up . And after a while we got the good news that the bird was showing . It took us a while to walk from the car park to the common and our hearts jumped for joy when we saw a crowd of people looking at the bird .
The bird was showing very well on the boardwalk along with the Isabelline Wheatear . This is only the 2nd time that I have seen these birds , with the first at Colyton Sewage Works in 2010 .
What a great start to the year with Isabelline Wheatear , Laughing Gull and Eastern Yellow Wagtail all seen in my home county of Devon .
