The Grey Wagtail

The Grey Wagtail.
A bird that is widespread in UK and Ireland.
It likes fast and slow moving rivers and is never very far from one or the other.
Although a resident species mostly, it will migrate South in very cold Winters.

It is on the UK Amber conservation list, but not the European list.

At this time it is very busy breeding young and as you can see from some of my images is catching various flies over the water and on river weed.

I was pleased to find these birds on my local river this year. On a separate location some 8 miles away I use to see a pair on a small river, but this year they are missing.  The life span of this species has been recorded up to 7 years.


  1. Se on ihana lintu. Toivottavasti näemme sen tänä kesänä täällä.

    1. Kiitos Anne. Se pesii myöhemmin tänä vuonna sään vuoksi.

  2. Beautiful photos of this bird. Have a nice weekend !
