One of the many things that struck me about David Lindo’s excellent book, which I recently had the pleasure of reading, was the view that when you’re birdwatching (or even if you’re not), anything can turn up at any time. He’s right.
Case in point today: A female Grey Wagtail on the garage roof near our flat this afternoon. I’d not seen these in
East Finchley before! A good sighting, I think.
