Grey Wagtails in mid-Cornwall 16th March 2021


I spent an enjoyable couple of hours photographing this lovely female Grey Wagtail this morning in mid-Cornwall on a fast flowing stream strewn with granite boulders.

Oddly enough Dippers were my intended target species for today but I never caught sight of one!

The wagtail was flitting from boulders to sticks to overhanging branches and catching quite a few insects as the sun had brought them out after a few dull days down in the valley bottom.

A bit of an exposure nightmare with all the sunshine and shadows but I really like the blown water highlights with the circular flares and started actually looking to include them in my pics.
