I'd seen a couple of White Wagtails at Easthaven but hadn't managed a photo in the shimmer of the heat rising from the sand but got a few at last. I've also found time to sort out a few videos from last week which are at the links below. The Ring Ouzel was taken on a windswept hillside at Lochlee, and the Sandpiper and Dipper feeding at Dalbrack Bridge in Glenesk.
I searched online and studied the books for a definitive description of a White Wagtail and am happy to conclude this bird is one. The upper photo shows the bib and the lower photo shows the grey rump and when comparing with Pied Wagtails on the beach this bird was distinctively different. This year as previously the White Wagtails weren't easy to approach but the resident Pied's were comfortable at less than 10 metres.
