Hi Guys. Just spotted today my Friend, that seems to be here all year, every year, ''Willie the Wagtail'', she found a New place to build her Nest, by making it in the Housing, that surrounds the the Fan, in my Old Grey Ferguson 20 D (see pics) So thats the Tractor out of Action for another while. Pics are not great, i did not want to disturb her to much.

Lovely pics, Summer.
What can I do to attract wagtails? They are one of my favourite birds, but they continue to ignore my garden, despite the pond and birdbath I've installed.

What really annoys me is that they will happily hop up and down the pavements of Lower Main Street, Letterkenny while ignoring this much more salubrious suburban location!

Anyone got any ideas?
