Wagtails

The first two images are a male Yellow Wagtail of the Spanish race. They are nothing like the common Yellow Wagtail species here in Britain which are pure yellow, as you can see from the third photo, the Spanish ones more resemble our Grey Wagtail which is the final image. Identification of the Yellows can be very confusing especially on spring migration here as we get lots of variations that are quite similar.
