Grey Wagtail
Comments(2) # Grey Wagtail london e17

I wouldn't normally post shots of this quality (though not too bad for 1600ISO!) but we don't often get Grey Wagtails around here so I make an exception on this occasion. The weather continues to be as grey as this bird's name and I wouldn't normally even bother taking the longer lens with me but I'm glad I did to capture this little chap who was, true to name, wagging his/her tail as though his/her life depended on it. The lack of a black bib suggests either a female or a male in winter plumage.....my book also says they group together in flocks of up to 2. That's not really a flock is it? Canon EOS 5D
