Pied Wagtail

The Pied Wagtail name is derived from it's black and white plumage and it's long tail that continually moves up and down. Female has dark-grey rather than black plumage, and juveniles are grey-brown.

These widespread birds are sometimes found in groups, mainly on the ground. They mainly build their nests in holes in walls and buildings, but will also use an open-fronted nest box provided for the Robin.

The Pied Wagtail will eat insects such as flies and caterpillars from the ground.
