Another Pebble On The Beach

Pied Wagtail Motacilla alba

This little Pied Wagtail (Motacilla alba), is very difficult to see on a stoney beach and could be another pebble until it moves. I followed this one as it ran along the shoreline. It hopped on the odd, larger stone as if to get a better vantage point or just to rest.

  1. Great shots and I can well imagine how hard it would be to spot on a grey stony beach. Love the second shot where the bird seems to be looking straight at you.

  2. Gorgeous photos and such a beautiful, cute little bird. I haven’t seen them in stones before so the varieties I have seen on sandy beeches and on new cut lawns could be different.
    All your photos are magic.

    • Thank you very much, Miriam πŸ™‚ I have never seen them on the beach until that day. I mainly see them in the park or in urban environments, so this was quite nice to see near the ocean.
