Grey Wagtail

Wednesday, March 12th 2014

A Grey Wagtail has been seen flying up and down the beck leading from the lake over the past few days.  This afternoon Hutch managed to capture this beautiful picture of the bird sunning itself on the rails by the weir. This species typically breeds along fast flowing streams with plenty of rocks in and around the water. Hopefully this bird will breed here and the ringers will be able to locate the nest. Make sure to keep your eyes peeled as you walk around the lake!

Our phone line is back up and running; if you need to contact the reserve the number is 01748 831113.
