I between my revision, I got a text saying that there was a yellow wagtail up at the raggalds flood. Sometimes there are opportunities not worth missing, and this was one. So I put down my books, grabbed some kit and headed up. What did that take, 10 mins?, but there was no wagtail there when I arrived. Luckily it was not a wasted journey as there was a very lovely lapwing, as well as numerous swallows skimming and collecting mud. After some ten mins there a female wheatear and pied wagtail turned up, so it was worthwhile in the end, though said yellow wagtail never showed itself.
