Grey or Yellow ?
My gallery here
Like everyone else I have theories and opinions on lots of things I know b*gger all about.
Hi Galatas i'll have a go at the ID,s and be wrong on both counts lol.
Juve Pied and Yellow.
My photos are on Flickr and Website
I'll agree with doggie. Juv Pied and Adult male Yellow
Where were they taken?
Birdwatching mag are doing an ID special on juvvy wagtails in the autumn-
For advice about Birding, Identification,field guides, binoculars, scopes, tripods, etc - put 'Birding Tips' into the search box
I would have thought that there would be only a slim chance of juv.White in this country as they are a continental bird.
Agree with the id's,the Yellow is looking a bit worn to me.
Birding is for everyone no matter how good or bad we are at it,enjoy it while you can
seymouraves Where were they taken? Birdwatching mag are doing an ID special on juvvy wagtails in the autumn-
A country lane alongside the M6 motorway at junction 22. There are local reports of good numbers of Yellow Wagtails in the area but I only saw one. Pied are much more common pretty much everywhere , aren't they ?
Thanks for confirming the IDs
We have had some local reports of good numbers of Yellow Wagtail showing up in places where they are not normally seen in what seems to be family groups.Could these be birds starting an early trip back to their wintering grounds ? I always thought they stayed around till at least early September.
I've got some Yellows on my local patch.
Just adding to the mix , a juvenile Grey Wagtail from 2 months ago.
