Yellow Wagtail (Motacilla flava)

The yellow wagtail is a small, graceful, yellow and green bird, with a medium-length tail and slender black legs. It spends much time walking or running on the ground. As its name implies, it wags its tail from time to time.

It is a summer visitor, migrating to winter in Africa. It breeds in a variety of habitats in the UK, including arable farmland, wet pastures and upland hay meadows. Serious declines in breeding numbers accross all of these habitats place the yellow wagtail on the red list of birds of conservation concern. (RSPB)

  7. Fantastic . I like the whole atmosphere of the photos as well. Birds on barbwire !
    They obviously know exactly where to position themselves, of course.
