21 White Wagtails at Corton

On Wednesday 4 April, receiving a tweet from Craig that he'd seen White Wagtails at Corton I drove and parked by the bridge at Stirrups Lane at 6.30pm and joined James B who watching watching a Wagtail flock in the ploughed field, initially there were further back by the puddled area but they flew a little closer and we eventually counted an amazing 21 White Wagtails, including 15 adult males, 4 Pied Wagtails (with 1 adult male), and 2 Linnets were amongst their number. They would fly up constantly or disappear into the furrows. The black crown of the males were markedly different from the pale silver grey backs.
