Wading Grey Wagtail

Third time lucky. When we first spotted one of these characters last week in the New Forest, I'd left my camera back at base. With a camera, I returned for a second day but the wagtail didn't. Camera, myself and the wagtail were all present at the third visit.
I normally prefer front shots but this slightly rear shot shows the Grey Wagtail's distinguishing features quite well.

No interactions present.

A very nice picture - glad you remembered your camera eventually and the GW showed up at the same time!!!

Old Lesson Re-learned

Write 500 lines, Curd: Interested parties should never go wandering without the camera. :))

Grey wagtail

Seen one in a churchyard for some reason. Miles away from water.
