52/365 – Pied Wagtail

This small, long-tailed and rather sprightly black and white bird can be seen dashing about over lawns or car parks in search of food. Its name comes from the obvious way it beats its tail up and down as it scurries about. A great place to see these is large supermarket car parks or in service stations on the motorways. They often gathers at dusk to form large roosts in city centres.
