The Grey wagtail (Motacilla cinerea) looks similar to the yellow wagtail but has the yellow on its underside restricted to the throat and vent. It is the longest tailed of the European wagtails. It breeds in much of temperate Europe and Asia and parts of north Africa. To avoid the winter cold, to which they are very susceptible, grey wagtails will move into more lowland areas such as farmland and even towns and cities. They are a very versatile predator, catching small dragonflies on the wing, a variety of insects off the ground, and even fishing tadpoles out of shallow water.
