Hello there, I’ve just joined this forum as something very curious is happening in our back garden at 10pm
Tonight. We have a Willy Wagtail
That keeps flying back and forth in our patio as we sit outside under our partio. We have had a nest here x2 seasons, but we have never seen this. Im worried something might be wrong with the bird. Does anyone know what might be happening? Thank you KellieJ

If you had the lights on, being a Flycatcher, it may have taken advantage of insects being attracted to the lights or you may have disturbed it from its roost.
I wouldn't worry too much.

What Matcho said - and just check the ground to make sure no chick has fallen out of a nest, and needs putting back up.
Just enjoy their visits like we do with out regular visitors.
