  1. @johnjohnston He was really going there! Yesterday I sat on the veranda and a “Linerle”, (Motacilla alba), child flew from the nest right by, and then sat on the head of a neighbor of mine which was sitting there. It sat on his head for a good 10 seconds, but unfortunately, I didn’t have a camera with me.

  2. @johnjohnston The name certainly sounds fitting. Some call it a “vippestjert” in Norway, and that means “wagtail”. When I was searching, (and failing) to find it’s name in English, I noticed that on the British isles there is a subspecies of the Motacilla alba, with the added name “yarrellii”.
