As I returned home from work yesterday evening, I was delighted to see the local pied wagtail feeding four fledglings on my back lawn. I sat in the car for 15 minutes watching them as they stood begging for food in a cloud of gnats. They clearly hadn't cottoned on yet to this fly-catching malarkey.

This afternoon, I managed to take some photos of the fledglings.
