Wagtail at last

By gary_d
Not my planned upload today but I have been trying to get a shot of one of these for ages and Patch and I followed this one up and down the river for about an hour today and finally managed this shot.

Thanks for looking.

Regards. - gary

Haven't seen one of these for years, one of my favourites too (that's not just because it is one of the few birds I can identify Blush)
Beautiful image, exquisitely sharp and characterful.

No idea how you managed to capture this as these little birds are simply never still! Great result of all that chasing though. We have a couple here again. Looking forward to watching the male taking on his "rival" in the forklift mirrors as per usual!

Very well taken and isolated from b/g.
I did capture this bird once but it wasn't so well defined as this.
Go to the top of the class.

Excellent Wagtail capture and pose, Gary. Not an easy bird to capture so well as they never keep still and also have that tricky black and white plumage. Very well exposed to show the plumage detail, patterning and tones so well.
