  1. Really lovely shots John, that second Bunting is perfect. I have not seen any Yellow Wags this spring yet.

    1. Hi Roy,
      Thank you, too kind, as ever. The Nene Washes are a good bet this year for Yellow Wags, on each visit I have made so far, I have always seen at least a couple.

    1. Hi Grace,
      Thank you. I have seen photos of some of the American warblers and they are certainly bright birds, a lot more so than `our` warblers.
      All is well on this side of the pond, thank you.

  5. Lovely photos of both birds John! They posed beautifully for you. My husband calls Yellow Wags 'flying custard' :-)

  8. John - you are far too modest. These pictures are terrific. There are plenty of published books with lesser photos in them! Don't say 'too kind!', it's true!
