Tonight at 19.00 I was filling the car at Morrison's petrol station in Harrogate and noticed Pied Wagtails coming in to roost in the trees behind the station forecourt. I watched for a while and suspect there must be over a 100 as small groups of up to ten were dropping into the bushes.

Red Admiral on Buddleia in my HG1 3HW garden today despite it being cold, blowy and intermittently rainy. Also much Hedgehog activity lately. We've had them for over 30 years, despite living right next to the A61/A59 junction.
