What's the Birdie!
This sweet little bird is local to the North Devon Coast and I snapped him quickly as he tip-toed his way, Wagtail style around the car park near the Southwest Coast Path. I think I know what bird this is, you might like to guess and it would be great if you experts could confirm the ID.
