WHERE TO WATCH?
You’ll find wagtails all year round in most habitats across the UK, including villages, town and cities, but focus your search for them near water, possibly on a farmyard or by a lakeside. They nest in stone wall crevices or under roof tiles or stones and can be seen searching for insects on bare areas, such as in car parks, on a golf course or even an asphalt road. Pied and White Wagtails lack any true yellow in their plumage, unlike the long-tailed Grey Wagtail and the shorter-tailed, green backed Yellow.
I can remember the two characterful birds chasing insects across the concrete surface!
