I think it is a grey wagtail but it could be a yellow wagtail. Feeding in a stream in the grounds of Dunster Castle. Extra brownie points for identifying its food!

An excellent photograph...

An excellent photograph capturing the action! Thanks for sharing it. I've read that grey wagtails are affected by harsh winters, lets hope this winter hasn't been too unkind.
