Back to Saturday 17 June at Denso Marston Nature Reserve

For this Saturday we have had a few posts to my blog to get the photos for you to see. I think this is the last one for Saturday. Hopefully the next posting will be for Sunday.

During the Saturday I was walking along the river hoping to see Dippers. No such luck, as you know I did manage to see a few other things, and I did keep hearing Wagtails. Most of the time they were either flying away from me or up under tree cover.

But I kept my eyes and ears open and saw a juvenile below me on some rocks. A cute little thing.

A little later I saw more of a family, 2 juveniles and 1 adult. Here the adult is saying “See that over there? Pay attention.”

“This is how it’s done. Are you watching kids? You will want to do this soon, please.”

And very aerobatically it picked an insect off the water.

But all the youngsters could say was “Feed me! Feed me!”

“Feed me too!”

But then when the adult turned to face them – “Hey! You’ve eaten it! That was ours.”
