Well thanks to Mike Alibone for pointing out the Blue Headed Wagtail in the post below, they're images 3,4 and 6 and it's the out of focus bird in the background. I had some slightly more in focus images but not much better of the individual in question. However I'm not going to post the images as Mike has them and will post them on Northants Bird Reports next week (probably Friday, I'll let you know or just look down the blog list down the left handside). Why? God (and Mike) knows how many images I've sent to Mike asking him "what's this/that etc" and he's always been kind enough to say, he also pointed out the bird in question, I didn't notice it although it did catch my eye on the day as all the other Yellow Wags weren't happy with it being around, chasing it or showing aggresive posturing when I got home I thought young grey wagtail!!!....idiot!
It's a new race of species for me and another image record and race of species that I've got for Welford reservoir but I've learnt two very important things from yesterday 1) Don't give your Collins Birdguide book to someone's daughter to use leaving you some cheap RSPB (rspb) little field book 2) Trust your gut, I was going to email the image late on Friday night to Mike, but thought "he's had enough dodgy record shots from me"....lesson learnt.
As a side note if any you guys spot something that ain't rightly identified or think I've made a mistake, let me know, I know from personal experience some individuals take exception when you point out an error, I DON'T, I really do welcome any tips/hints etc to be honest I need all the help I can get :)...oh and don't forget scan them flocks very carefully, you never know!
