Watch the Dickie Bird!

What Dickie Bird?

Oh, That one!

I knew this little Wag Tail was down the in the fast-flowing stream, as I could see it flitting about. But it was really hard to capture when looking through my camera and when I checked my photos later I thought at first that I’d missed it.

British birds seem to like living life on the edge, in rapidly flowing water (see Ducklings), but they appear to thrive on it. I spotted this energetic bird at Newmillerdam, Yorkshire, during my UK trip last June.

Now, I don’t know much about British birds, except that this was obviously a Wag Tail. However, careful research (oh, all right: Google!) reveals that this cute little bird is a Grey Wag Tail; and a female one at that, as she is, quote “like the male but duller”!

Also, in typical Mum fashion, she has her face stuffed with insects to take back to her hungry chicks.

    Very interesting! I can’t’ tell what it is at first when I look at the first two pictures. The color of the bird is very similar to those tree sticks lol 😀 It’s a magical feeling when I come know there is a bird in the photo when I look at the last two photos. Good one Sci! 😉

    I see you were using the same ‘bird capture’ technique as me. .. point camera in general direction of bird, hold shutter, take 100 shots and hope for the best! 😉
