I shall have to be a lot quicker in future. Being a typical member of this Edwards family involves never having a camera more than a metre from your hand at any time. Well I was ok from that point of view and reached for the camera nice and calmly just a few seconds after I saw a Pied Wagtail walking round looking for insects outside the study door. Whilst Wagtails are not particularly uncommon on the Island I have never seen one at Tigh na Mara before. In fact I've not seen one this year anywhere on the Island come to think of it. This one was probably the lightest coloured Wagtail I've ever seen. Just as I focussed the camera and took the picture it flew off and all I got was a small blur of a wing feather. It came back later for a few seconds but I've not seen it today.
