Eighteen Yellow Wagtails in an Ash tree.
At least 18 yellow wagtails on Orcombe Point late this afternoon. Quite possibly a few more. Also 4 wheatear, 1 stonechat, 6 chiffchaff and c30+ meadow pipit. Only a small area covered.
I wonder if this could be a blue-headed wagtail? It has a blue-grey cast to the crown and a nice white supercilium. Additional supportive features include a yellow throat, white sub-moustacial stripe and white fleck below the eye. It does have some olive patches on the crown too though. Compare it to the more typical olive-crowned birds below that sport yellow superciliums.
I'm really pleased with these shots. They are by far the best shots of yellow wag I've ever taken.
Hi Matt, agree does look very suggestive of blue-headed. Either way lovely birds and really nice photos too.ReplyDelete
