Citrine Wagtail

Checked the sewage ponds while taking our dog out for a morning walk and was absolutely delighted to find one of my favourite birds feeding by the less noxious of the two pools. Citrine Wagtail! A stunning male of the citreola race (black collar extending over wing bend and some black feathering in the crown) and a superb patch tick!

Amazing how different it looks in slightly different light.

Short-toed Eagle flew overhead, calling.

Two Black-winged Stilts on the same pool were also patch ticks for me.
