Yellow fellow

Yellow Wagtails, these have always been a favourite bird of mine, late April and May is the time when they use a local dung heap as a migration "service station" , very many come through, I have seen as many as 74 there all at once, and usually one or two stay to raise a brood or two. The dung is not the most photogenic of settings but it produces huge numbers of bugs and larvae.
The whole countryside has a predominance of yellow all around, Oil-seed Rape that almost glows in the dark covers great expases of arable land and theres a good show of Dandelions too.
