Lisvane Wagtail

(c) Rob Thomas [cropped but otherwise unedited]
The best of three record shots taken by Rob of a wagtail that ticks most of the boxes for Citrine. The weak wrap-around supercilium is a little off-putting, but could just be an effect of the dull light and the head being turned slightly towards the camera? All the other features appear to be spot on. This will be an interesting one for the rarities panel.

First seen v briefly on 13th when noted as juv Yellow, not seen on 14th then photos obtained on 15th as I understand it. Photos were posted on Glamorgan Birds sightings.
