Belated May 5th   Leave a comment

There was a white wagtail amongst the pied wagtails of Balcomie Beach today. An unusual migrant on its way up to Iceland. They look very similar to pied wagtails so they are easy to overlook. We get quite a few in Crail, especially in the spring. They have pale grey backs and a diagnostic grey rump. Even pied wagtails that have pale grey backs have a black rump, not contrasting in any way with the black tail.
