Venus Pool - Wagtail feast

Venus Pool was notable for a great showing of Wagtails! A Yellow Wag dropped in just after I arrived and presumably the same bird reappeared on two occasions during the following hour - never near enough to capture. There were a couple of Grey and Pied Wags but this superb male White Wagtail stole the show! Great views in variable light conditons.....

Common Snipe and Common Sandpiper nearby.

Couldn't catch the aerobatics but this displaying male Lapwing was trying to impress and get the girl!
