Motacilla cinerea, Grey Wagtail, breeds in Europe and Siberia and migrates to tropical regions. They feed on invertebrates such as adult flies, mayflies, beetles, crustacea and molluscs.

Walks quietly along shorelines or in nearby open areas, pumping its tail up and down. Song is a repetitive series of high-pitched notes; calls include short, high “pseet” and buzzier flight calls.
