“Be a blue headed”

We’ve talked before on Letter from Norfolk about the complex family of the flava Wagtails. There are several subspecies and many intergrades. One such subspecies is the Blue headed Wagtail – always nice to see.

As Andy and I stood chewing the cud aside the local cattle paddock this week we heard a couple of Yellow Wagtails call as they flew over us. Before they landed among the cows I heard a half mumbled prayer offered up to the birding God by Andy … “be a blue headed, be a blue headed”. Sadly the prayer went unheard but Yellow Wags are still great birds.
