Grey Wagtail

By brian1208
I took a quick stroll down by our local river before lunch. There was not much about and the light wasn't that good but this little Grey Wagtail pottered along the edge of the bank in front of me, so I fired off a few shots

I never understand why these are called "Grey", they are such pretty little birds

Nicely captured. There is just slight movement visible in the images.
I guess 'grey' as the back of the bird is grey, and the yellow wagtail is more yellow Smile.
V1 for me.

A lovely set of photos of this beautiful bird. Quite a tricky customer to photograph in my experience.

thanks all, yes Keith, this little thing was never still, even when apparently so and even at 1/1000th sec there is, as you say, some movement blur showing.

Well it is only a smidgen, and not detrimental, perhaps I'm over critical, I know perhaps I am with my own shots. Smile
