subspecies yarrellii

In this case the Englsih name "Pied Wagtail" refers specifically to the subspecies 'yarrellii' - so the subspecies had been identified in the original identifcation (it doesn't hurt to add the full scientific name as well though).

Agreed

Yes, I agree. The only reason for updating it as I did, is that, as I understand it, the scientific name is what adds the species to the carousel of other pics of the same species. Strictly to get it recorded as Pied Wagtail, it needs the yarrellii, then. If I am wrong on that, do let me know!
