Friendly Wagtail.

Pied Wagtail .....Motacilla alba yarrellii


  1. Nice shot Trevor.
    Looks like he's laughing at a joke you've just told him :)

  2. I don't need to tell them jokes they laugh at me! A pair on Customs House Quay, mixing with the Herring Gulls yesterday.

  3. Hi Keith.
    ...I do not think he saw me lean out the car window..unless that was what he was laughing at.

  4. Hi Adrian.
    Not an easy bird to photograph well as they are continually on the move.

  5. How so much like our Motacilla alba they are here now on migration most are nesting so shall hopefully get some photos of the young before they leave again, I had some nice shots of the yellow wagtail more female than males here the female is almost like the pied in colour. and just like you said quite hard to get a decent photo so well done on yours.

  6. Hi The Yellow Wagtail is a lovely bird..not so easy to find on these shores as the Pied.
