Thank you all for the information

I think most of us are leaning towards Grey Wagtail as the other two should have more solid yellow with no traces of white and are unlikely to nest there although could pass through on migration if blown off course. Feldeggs are regular migrants here (Eastern Spain).

Hi thanks this is helpful. Unfortunately I didn't see the throat colour

I would not discount Yellow Wagtail, either thunbergi or feldegg sub-species, which have respectively black or dark grey heads, or even a Grey Wagtail. Did you see the throat colour?

Thanks for adjusting the map! I could not ID the bird but will ask one of our bird experts to check it out.

Apologies I'm currently on holiday in the French alps. The bird was photographed near aviemore, Scotland. Hope you can help?

Hi seeley11! Could you please indicate the right location on the map for this spotting? It doesn't match the description you have in the text. Thanks!
