Wagtail but very blue ? bird watchers of knowledge reqd


Recommended Posts

Not a great pic from phone but at least this time i captured it (missed it a number of times this last week) - It looks like a wagtail but is very blue with a blue line from its eye down to its tail - Is it just a yellow wagtail or a hybrid

Looks like a grey wagtail to me.

Yes Clive a wood pigeon. We have a large feeder and often get 10+ wood pigeons around it. I've seen this sparrow hawk a few times he flies low over the adjacent garden then over my fence, through the

Talking about birds, did you see that Sparrow Hawk on Autumn Watch yesterday, best bird in the world according to pretentious Packham. To be honest I couldn't disagree, it was gorgeous. Sorry to hijack your thread Clive, but I hope you think it's worth it.

I had a Juvenile Sparrowhawk in my garden Wednesday eating a pigeon. The pigeon was still alive flapping but half eaten. Then a black cat jumped off the shed and startled the Sparrowhawk who flew off. The cat then picked up the pigeon and walked off with it.

"Sparrowhawk in my garden Wednesday eating a pigeon" that's unusual as they dont normally go for them as they are stronger and can damage the Hawks wings - I presume we are talking about a Wood Pigeon not a feathered rat/Ferrule Pigeon?
