WRIGGLY TIN AND WAGTAIL

Running out of sync this morning, so a quick post. Much as you like misty photographs I'm getting a little sick of it. Will try and get out this evening as I've found an old barn which I suspect is a photogenic subject. This morning it just looks like a rusty shed.

WRIGGLY TIN SHED

Wriggly tin, a colloquialism for corrugated iron sheeting, a once common building material though still available, no longer in common use.

JUVENILE PIED WAGTAIL

Cute little chap, we have several of these this year. Previously the Grey Wagtail was predominant. Why it's called a Grey Wagtail I'm not sure as the noticeable colour is yellow.

Not a particularly edifying subject but I like the reflection.

Got to take Molly for a good haircut, assuming I can find the dog groomer, always a problem.

  1. It's called a Grey Wagtail to distinguish it from the Yellow Wagtail (which is, of course, predominantly green). And then there's the White Wagtail which is grey and ... well, you get the idea.

  2. Being a lover of old buildings, I absolutely love that first shot. I look forward to seeing your old barn.

  3. I like the first photo. The little bird looks as if he's posing for you.

  4. Thanks John, thought it was another misclassification. As I said before wish I was wandering around naming these species, born years too late unfortunately.
