Blue-headed Wagtail

a striking flava with the Yellow on the local patch -- the head pattern seems good for flava as does the upperpart colour and the striking call also sounds good so on consideration I think it is a good Blue-headed particularly having seen a typical lavender headed channel wagtail a couple of days later

I would lean I think towards Blue headed Wagtail with this one. I saw 2 at Reculver last week, photos of a female on my blog. I would have thought a Channel Wagtail would have a more washed out paler blue head.

My thoughts too Mark - I came across a classic lilac headed channel male today in another flock and it was just so different to this bird
