Bit like buses - you wait all day for one then 8 come along together. In this case they were Yellow Wagtails at the Ewelme Cress Beds and species number 59 for the year. I had almost given up hope but they often seem to appear in early September. Also livening up the hard work accompanied by the Wallingford Green Gym was a mixed flock of about 100 Swallows and House Martins. I wonder if I hadn't been working and had my bins whether I would have caught up with a Sand Martin amongst them? Also a couple of young Green Woodpeckers laughing at us.
