I took a shot of this grey wagtail whilst paddling on our lake. They are much more colourful than their name suggests and are often mistaken for the yellow wagtail.
Two distintive characteristics of the Grey wagatil are clearly shown in this photo: They have a much longer tail than other wagtails and they often perch in trees - something I believe other wagtails rarely do.
You can tell this a female as the males have an obvious black chin and throat during the summer.
