Grey Wagtails

My thanks to Andy B. for the tip off on these Grey Wags that are building a nest alongside the river Camel.

After spending most of the morning driving around looking for a Redstart nest in an old barn wall that I'd been told about I'd just about given up for the day until I remembered this site where I saw the wags carrying nest material and watched them mating.
Unfortunately I didn't get the best angle on the copulating pair as I was at the top of the riverbank looking down on them but hey, so what, I watched them getting the business done and can now re-visit the site when they start feeding young.
