Over a month ago in preparation for the arrival of our Yellow Wagtails i began driving the farm lanes and placing mealworms down on the usual dung heaps. I have placed these down on both fresh dung and old heaps from last year as a way of encouraging the birds to hang around and feed. Admittedly the heaps themselves hold a huge variety of insect life so the birds have plenty of food and would not go hungry but since their arrival i have observed them ignoring all other food and simply gorging on mealworms which makes me think it has been justified!

Here are the first batch of images that i have taken so far, they are by no means my best as i have struggled with light being in the right place when i have free time etc but i have put the time and effort in and am happy and look forward to improving on these...
