We were sitting outside at the Norway Inn near Falmouth this afternoon, and first heard then noticed two unusual little birds which seemed to be nesting in one of the inn's lovely window boxes. Very happy to see these were what I now see are endangered yellow wagtails, in a place they are not expected to be. Wondering if the quiet of lockdown and the glorious spring we had has encouraged back such rare species. Bird lovers on the way into beautiful Falmouth should pop in to see them now we're able to. You can't miss them as they're so noisy! So sad we didn't photograph them, as we didn't realise they were rare. They look happy and well-established, and hoping they were nesting successfully in what looked like a safe place for them.
