Blue-headed Wagtail, Whitley Bay

Wagtail fest on Whitley Bay beach, right now! A superb Blue-headed Wagtail, a dozen or more White Wagtails, a Yellow Wagtail and even a Pied Wagtail completing the cast. Just park at St Marys and walk a couple of hundred metres south down the beach. The wagtails are feeding on the flies around the seaweed. Another reason not to clean seaweed off beaches.

  1. Fantastic. I've not seen one of those before (I'm no bird spotter) but that looks sublime.
