Hi Mark. The views we had of this bird were reasonably good (only bins no scope) but distant and unfortunately only brief, but it didn't strike me as being as pale headed as in your photos. I am aware of the intergrade “ Channel Wagtail” and your photos do now show it as a possible contender. Over to the local Records Committee.!

Carlton's very smart wagtail was still at Brecfa Pool this evening - well done Carlton. It looks to be a possible candidate for "Channel Wagtail" to me. Have a look at the photo's in the gallery and see what you think...
