A Winter's 'Tail (or Alba Home For Christmas)

As lovely as the twinkling illuminated trees and buildings around Lancaster are at this time of year, a far prettier cluster of adornments can be found in the city centre on any given evening.
At no cost whatsoever to local council tax-paying folk (and with a significantly smaller carbon footprint than the mass of electric lights), these lovely things can be found in the two small trees at Horseshoe Corner from late afternoon onward - often unseen by the vast majority of passers-by.
A quick count of the pied wagtails roosting at this traditional site reveals somewhere between 350 and 400 birds. Quite a wonderful sight.
