Devon Flashback 11 - 2006 Ashy-headed Wagtail

This bird was found by Ernie Davis on Thurlestone Marsh on April 17th 2006. I shot down for it as I hadn't seen this form before. I remember being quite taken with it. Above are my notes and sketches. It was a beautiful bird and showed quite well, but my photos are typically crap. You get the idea though. The call was noted as 'typical yellow wag' which means it wasn't at all raspy to my ear. Yellow wag calls are pretty variable though in my experience.
