Photographs February 2003.

Cliff sightings of this bird are less frequent than the Pied Wagtail and it does seem to be considerably more timid. Such is its acute sense of imminent picture taking that it managed to evade the camera completely throughout 2002.

This bird pictured on the left is not very brightly coloured and was down on the rocks by the seashore, where they are occasionally seen in the Spring and Autumn. However these pictures are the best I have managed there so far.

The bird in the two lower photographs was spotted beside a stream a few hundred yards inland from the cliff. It still didn't seem keen on letting me approach very close but at least the light was better, and the one at the bottom left will enlarge slightly.
