Grey Wagtail

The grey wagtail has slate grey upper parts and a strong yellow under-tail. In flight its tail is longer than those of pied and yellow wagtails and it looks exceptionally narrow at the base.

In the summer the male has a distinctive black throat and is usually solitary but a few can be seen feeding together along stretches of water where insects are plentiful.

In the winter they move to lower locations, which may include urban lakes or canals and nearby rooftops.

Grey Wagtails are predominantly insect eaters but will eat mealworms and soft foods.
