Lovely photo Anne

Here in England we have lost the good old Sparrow in many suburban parts of the cities, but the Pied Wagtail is a great success story.

When I was young you had to go to the green and watery areas of the suburbs to see one, but now they are common even in open paved areas of the inner cities, such as school playgrounds.

Regards, Peter

Thanks for your nice comment, Peter! The population of sparrows has also decreased overhere, but they have not disappeared completely. In fact we have quite a few in our neighbourhood. But there are also some wagtails, but you find them on meadows and near ponds and not so much in the streets. Greetings, Anne

Sehr nett getroffen, diese Stelze! Ich habe allerhand Erlebnisse mit Bachstelzen gehabt, sie sind sehr eitel und haben immer unseren grossen Autospiegel "benutzt"! Dann haben wir mal Jungtiere aus einem Wasserfall gerettet, sie konnten nicht hochfliegen, da mit Gitter geschuetzt, so ist ein Mutiger runter und hat diese Tiere aus dem Wasser geholt..unvergesslich!

Like fuer diese bunte Wiese mit unserem Freund!

LG Birgit
