I saw this picture in a bird calendar in W H Smiths. It claims it's a Yellow Hammer but I think it's a Yellow Wagtail?? What do you think??

Yellow wagtail.

If you look at Google images for the Yellow Hammer then you will find several pictures of Yellow Wagtails. How confusing for people who don't know!

and newspapers...

I nearly choked some time ago when the local paper published an article on the new reserve at Radley, near Abingdon, and illustrated it with a photograph of a "Coot" - but an American Coot!

I presume a lot of the stock photos these people use are from the USA.
