Yesterday lunchtime I had a quick walk down into Lydford Gorge. I was lucky to find a noisy family of grey wagtails – in the last couple of days the chicks have left the nest and are now flying around the river but are still being fed by their parents. Here are a few photos
Grey wagtail fledgling (the name given to a chick which has now learnt to fly)
Lots of light grey and a hint of yellow around the tail
Every 5-10 minutes the adults would come and feed the birds who were constantly calling
I saw two fledglings – one on each side of the river
Lydford Gorge and the Lyd – its like going up the Amazon!
The Cauldron was quite lively yesterday
