Strange Willie Wagtail

On our walk this morning we saw a very active Willie Wagtail, flitting around in the early morning sun gathering his breakfast.

As we approached I noticed something different. It didn’t look normal. As it flew past quite close to us I realised that it had no tail. In fact, it looked quite dumpy, not at all like a Willie Wagtail. It still managed some nifty aerobatics as it gathered its morning food.

Needless to say I didn’t have a camera with me, so below is a photo of a normal looking Willie Wagtail.

PS: Should I have called it a Willie Wag???
