We are all familiar with our Willie Wagtail, but there are another group of unrelated birds that carry this name, Wagtails of the genus Motacilla.
They breed in Eurasia and Africa. Many populations are migratory and as a result the Eastern Yellow Wagtail and Grey Wagtail can sometimes be found in Australia in the summer months.
These birds all 'wag' their tails up and down, rather than side to side.
Western Europe has three species and I recently filmed these distinctive and engaging birds
