08:40 this morning 7 Juvenile Yellow Wagtails on the Road at Totney Drove near the North Drain Bridge. They were taking food off the road as I approached them in the car. They flew to the Gates and adjacent field. At one stage 5 of them on the Gate at the same time. Again chasing each other around.

I was only saying to someone yesterday that I’ve only seen 2 Yellow Wagtails this year at Tealham Moor in early May. This morning at Jack’s Drove Just before the bridge over the “Old Ryne” down Tealam Moor Drove, washing in the puddles and taking flies off the puddles 7 Juvenile Yellow Wagtails. They were chasing each other around and very mobile going from puddle to puddle. This was around 08:15 this morning. Also further down Tealam Moor Drove were 2 Juvenile Whinchats. Too far away to take a photo.
