Yellow Wagtail, Grey Wagtail ?

I got a real surprise when I saw out of the window, what I thought was a yellow wagtail running and bobbing along the guttering. I have now discovered it is a grey wagtail and that normally they like to feed in streams. The pictures are poor quality as I grabbed my camera and took them through the window. I like the one where it is shaking itself dry.

  1. Yep, definitely a Grey Wagtail. I've never seen one, despite being in what I would imagine to be ideal territory for them. The Yellows will have all headed off south for the Winter now. If their habits are anything like the Pied Wagtail, hopefully he will keep coming back so you may get an opportunity for a close up!
