Pied wagtail on a rooftop
I always associate pied wagtails (Motocilla alba yarrellii) with service stations, sewage works, roadsides etc. They seem to be very much a bird of the man-made environment. The pied wagtail is the actually the British race of the nominate species known as the white wagtail (Motocilla alba) which is found elsewhere in continental Europe.
