Suffolk Sewage works - Revisited . . . .November 19th 2008.
We visited the Sewage Work site again in Mid November but unfortunately had little success. Although there were a few wagtails, both Pied and Grey in the vicinity, the numbers were smaller than previous visits. After spending the afternoon and evening in the area, we only caught one Pied Wagtail with two 40 ft mist nets up and a tape lure. The bird caught was a first year (3) Male. See the bottom image below which shows the new, dark greater coverts in contrast with the brown old retained ones.
