Five additions to year list.

The approach to Top Hill Low holds several Oilseed rape fields at their brightest yellow hue and star bird today was a good number of Yellow Wagtails on the wall of the 'O' reservoir the male just as yellow as that oilseed rape.

Other birds for the year today were Swift, Sedge Warbler, Common Tern and Common Sandpiper.

Earlier we visited Filey Dams but no sighting of Wood Sandpipers where 4 were yesterday on East Lea, part of the reserve only available to Filey Ornithological Group members. Then to Bempton but the Wryneck seen yesterday apparently disappeared off the reserve early in the evening, so still a bird we have yet to see.

The Yellow Wagtails were crackers.

Thanks for everyones comments, these are gorgous birds.
I was pleased with the relative sharpness as my lens at full 500mm extension was waving in the strong wind.

Hi Chris,
Nice shots of the wagtail. The bird caused a stir in South Africa when it peached up in December 2010. All twicthers were up and about following this rare bird within our borders.Good work.
