There is a mention of the Black-throated Wagtail (Wingspan 10: 11) in a list
of birds on the Australian list whose common names needed revision as a
result of taxonomic changes.  I would be grateful for information on what
taxon this refers to.  Could it refer to Grey or White Wagtail - or be an
error for Black-backed?

Thanks for any help,  Hugo.
