All the pictures to date have been ascribed to Yellow Wagtail. Depending on 
your taxonomy, Eastern Yellow and Green-headed. This includes the white vented 
bird so all those with racing hearts can now let them subside as it looks 
unlikely that there was a Citrine Wagtail in the group. I still feel that I saw 
Grey Wagtail with an all grey back and wingbars in flight. I know it is not the 
“right” habitat and that the two species don’t usually hang around together. 

This conversation then throws doubt on my other sightings of Grey Wagtails as 
they were also not in the right habitat. Does anyone have definite sightings 
(backed up by pictures) of Grey Wagtail on ponds, swamps or open ground in 

A number of photographers are headed that way now so we may have some better 
shots later.
