Black-headed Wagtail (Leighton Moss 14-04-18)

  • Just found this I wonder why its not up on the site?

  • MC (Paul) saw it somewhere on a report and flagged it up to me;  hoping it hangs around a little longer :)   what a beautiful bird and I'd never heard of a B-headed-Wagtail before.    

    It was spotted on a field near the car park for the salt marshes.    

  • Saw a few photos of it on twitter the other day Jim I was wondering if any of you were going to get some shots.

  • A striking bird with that black hood and bright yellow colour. It didn't really seem to be living up to its Wagtail name in the vid though. Still, a shame I won't get up to see it in the next days, assuming it hangs around.

  • Strictly speaking it's a Yellow Wagtail of the Black-headed race feldegg. Pretty rare bird in this country so a very nice find.

  • They don’t mention were it was seen but if it was down near the salt marsh it could be anywhere and a new post says it was heard today so its still there at the moment.

  • It was down outside the Eric Morecambe hide on Saturday.

  • Thanks for letting us know Steve.
