Par Pied Wagtails

Pied Wagtail .............Motacilla alba
One of a number of Wagtails that frequent the beach and shoreline. Very active and forever darting around in what appears a relentless search for food.


  1. Lovely photo of the Wagtail, I always think they are difficult to do justice to but you have managed it well and that is a great photo of the Little Egret on the previous post.

  2. Hi SSB.
    Thanks for your comment.
    I have often stated the Pied Wagtail is a very difficult bird to photograph well. My theory is that birds with very dark heads are more difficult to get a great shot of than say gulls or a Robin. The Oystercatcher is another bird I am still waiting to get a reasonable photograph of. Maybe it is because the eyes are not so prominent.
