Pied Wagtails Courting II
Pied Wagtails Courting II. Derbyshire, Peak District National Park. I was capturing some close up portraits of the female wagtail surrounded daisies when suddenly the male arrived and began a courtship display, I quickly slithered back so I could fit them both in the frame and capture the action.
Pied Wagtails Courting – About The Pied Wagtail:
The pied wagtail (Motacilla alba) is a small, long-tailed black and white bird. Wagtails get their name from the way they repeatedly wag their tails up and down.
Wagtails are typically seen near water, ideal hunting ground for insects. They can be seen in diverse range of habitats, including our towns and cities. They often gather together in large communal roosts for warmth and safety.
