Yellow Wagtails moving through

(c) D. Roberts
Dai Roberts photographed this Yellow Wagtail at Llanrhidian this week, it being  1 of 4 birds seen there that day. Others have appeared elsewhere locally, including 6 at Castell-du seen by Paul Larkin. As mentioned previously this is a much scarcer bird in the west of the county (see http://goweros.blogspot.com/2010/09/yellow-wagtail-cardiff-v-swansea.html). The map below shows the best places to see the species locally and now is probably the best time to go out and look.
