I first met Stumpy in early February 2020 – nicknamed Stumpy because of the damage to its left leg, which now ends in a stump, no claw.

Almost two years and several sightings later, this charming little Pied wagtail is still going strong. In fact, it’s a friendly little thing and quite fearless: if I stand completely still, it will walk past within inches of my feet.

These particular photos of Stumpy were taken a couple of weeks apart, the first on 22 December last year and the second, just a couple of weeks ago, on 6 January.
