    • I heard a bird making quite a cheepy racket in a tree above my head, and when I looked up saw this wagtail, a grey I think – I don’t understand how it could have been cheeping with that insect in its mouth. Could the insect be a dragonfly, there’s quite a lot of it?

    • They are charming birds, I think – have seen them down on the stones by the Leet but this one was in a tree quite a way from the Tweed. Isn’t the sky a nice colour!

      • It’s beautiful; one of my favourite shades of blue!

      • Alas not like that in the Borders today, I stomped out in the rain without my camera, and kept more or less to the roads, as I only had my cord trousers on, and the plants have grown so high with all the rain and then days of sunlight that the country paths are almost invisible, and one comes back with one’s trousers ringing wet from all that damp grass and those flowers that seem to have grown higher than one’s head…

    • Lovely birds, aren’t they. Don’t often see them these days, and when I do they are almost always down on the stones by River Leet; I was surprised to see this one high up a tree, and cheeping, even though it had that insect in its beak.
