Pond aroma tale

During lunch break on Pond Cleaning Day, we were visited by a pair of Pied Wagtails. They seemed happy pottering around the lawn in the rain, though the Chaffinches looked a bit confused.

"He's emptied the pond down to the liner, and NOW you show up?"

These two images are of the same bird, I believe, as on checking back through my photos, I did not have images of the other one. What a numpty.

Whether their appearance was related to the emptying of the pond, or more precisely, the heaps of mud about the garden, I don't know. Certainly, all the borders had a generous helping of pond goo, so the place stank to high heaven and our resident Dunnocks haven't been seen since!
