Blue-headed Wagtail
Black-headed Wagtail male
The Yellow Wagtail is native to temperate Eurasia. In the warmer regions it may be resident but in northerly and easterly areas it migrates south (Africa/Asia) in winter. There are several subspecies over its range, often with different head plumage and names (see links below). Shown is the nominal subspecies, the Blue-headed Wagtail, of continental Europe.
