While round at Ma's for a full family get together, with the Nicks, the Gibbos et al, we watched Wales storm to a typical 'crap for 30 mins, then storming in tries for the rest' 6 nations victory. We also toasted Nye's arrival in this world with some fine House of Lords pink champagne and ate enough of Ma's lush food to sink a hide full of twatchers. Then, in the final minute and play of the match a bird on the roof of the house opposite caught my eye. Pale on its underside and with a flash of yellow in its belly it wagged its oversized tail like some kind of berserker, hopped around for a bit and then snuck somewhere in the roof to roost. A very surprising Grey Wagtail! Almost as good as when the Red Kite flew past her back garden. Another great Hethersett bird for the list.
