Exquisite Yellow Wagtail

A decent look around Seaton Marshes early afternoon yielded another Redstart (female) and also 3 Yellow Wags which dropped in and remained all day, 2 of them showing reliably from Seaton Hide. I decided it'd be worth an evening visit too as birds have been dropping in late in the day here recently; this proved to be a good idea as the Redstart was still present and at least 4 more Yellow Wags dropped. I knew they were approaching because of their unmistakeable call, and fortunately for me they popped up on a fence briefly. And oh my, one of them was an absolute beaut!

Just look at that colour!!! As it was light in the day and it was fairly dark, this bird appeared almost fluorescent!
