Grey Wagtail------Grey wagtails are common birds of fast-flowing rivers; their greatest densities are in the hills of England, Scotland and Wales. In winter they move to lowland areas and can be spotted in farmyards and even in towns. Grey wagtails eat insects like ants and midges which they find beside rivers and snails and tadpoles in shallow water. They nest near the water in hollows and crevices lined with moss and twigs.
