... with their 'littlebitofbreadbutnooooocheese' call, but they're not the only yellow birds around. Andrew Graham tells how, 'Out on a cycle ride one morning I saw a yellow wagtail in the pasture on the east side of the road opposite Summerleaze Oaks.
'I must say I have never seen one before away from obvious passage locations and times and certainly not around here but I know they are a bit elusive and are decreasing in number.'
Peter Shallcross commented, 'Interesting siting particularly as yellow wagtails should be breeding now.
'The only time I have seen yellow wagtails was three or four years ago when I captured a photo of one on a trail cam by the dew pond in Chantry. Then the following year there was at least a pair in the same place over a period of a month. They may have attempted to breed there but I never saw any young.
'I think in the north of Wiltshire there are an increasing number of pairs so maybe they originate from that population.'
