White Wagtail

Posted by
ursulakatariina (Ed, Sweden) on 21 April 2013 in Animal & Insect.

Yesterday morning right after 7 am I went out with the camera. My intention was to shoot the melting ice and I did, but then there was this sign of spring walking on ice and I totally forgot the ice. :)

White wagtails are the northern variant of grey wagtails that we have in southern England. I've only seen the white ones in Scotland

@CElliottUK: The white ones are in Finland considered as a sign of the coming summer, according to an old poem it's only a short while from the first wagtail till summer starts.
