The Pied Wagtail is a small black and white (pied) bird that many people mistake for a very young Magpie but it is much, much smaller than a Magpie and is similar in size to a Great Tit.
British Birds on Wild About Britain includes the latest bird news from around the UK, thousands of bird photos in our image gallery, hundreds of bird conversations in our bird forums, a directory of British bird-related organisations and websites, as well as a big reference encyclopedia with information on everything from the Magpie and Ruddy Shelduck to the Temminck's Stint and the Great Northern Diver.
