Been walking around with this question since May. With my reputation for silly ones I only gathered courage to post now :lol: We stopped at the Shell Ultra City just before Harrismith coming from Villiers. Early morning. Loads of wagtails about and I could've sworn some had yellow bellies. Pics didn't work, light was wrong. Books not at hand. Thought Mountain wagtail. Saw that 2 weeks later in Uitenhage. Not that then. Did light play a trick on my eyes? Please, be honest :lol:

Light certainly plays tricks on Wagtails. :lol:

Grey Wagtail is only partially yellow and that is a very very very scarce bird in SA. Yellow Wagtails are very yellow.

We also saw a "yellow" Wagtail on sunday. I think the more you looking for a Yellow Wagtail, the more yellow you see. :lol: :twisted:
