Grey Wagtail

I spent an hour one afternoon watching this lovely little Wagtail flitting backwards and forwards along the waters edge pecking at bugs and pieces of bread.  The little bird would stay for a while and then would fly off only to return a little while later.  The Grey Wagtail is one of the smaller members of the Wagtail family and is distinguished from the Yellow Wagtail as it only has yellow around its throat )although breeding males develop a black throat) and vent (term used for the posterior opening in birds, reptiles and amphibians.
