Grey wagtail

Grey WagtailThe end of september and early october is the easiest time of the year to come across a Grey Wagtail in my area. Today we encountered this one feeding by the side of an outdoor swimming pool used for kayak training in the middle of the city. They are very fond of water, their little sprints to catch insects by the edge of the water line with their long tails bobbing up and down constantly, and their intensely brimstone yellow undertail coverts, contrasting with the paler belly makes them easy to identify.
