Wagtail roost

Isn’t it strange how a mundane shopping trip can turn into something much more enjoyable and interesting.

At the local Tesco’s store late this afternoon we sat for 45 minutes and watched the Pied Wagtails getting ready to roost. There must have been a couple of hundred birds there – a small number really by Wagtail roost standards but interesting nevertheless. The birds were quite spread out at first – some on the roof of Tesco, some next door on the roof of Homebase and quite a few pecking about on the car park.

Every now and again they would all get up and fly around and settle again. Eventually they all made their way to some short bushes – no more than 3 feet tall and disappeared into the vegetation to spend the night in relative safety.
