Thunbergi

The flava wagtail group is a somewhat complicated one. At West Runton yesterday was a very smart Grey headed jobbie … thunbergi. That bright yellow base topped with a grey crown and nape with slightly darker ear coverts underlined with a white mustache. A smart bird if there ever was one. As Tania and I looked on it played hide and seek in among the grass and dandelions; at times becoming almost invisible.

The Secretary Bird of the marshes

It was raining Yellow Wagtails on Friday the 24th April. Birds were bouncing around almost every grassy field here on the coast. We heard of Blue Headed, Ashy Headed and Syke’s among them. Some rich yellow long legged males reminded me of miniature African Secretary Birds.
