The Pied Wagtail (Moctacilla alba yarrellii) spends most of it's time near any source of water. It is equally happy anywhere with a good food supply where it can eat flies and other insects. during the courtship period more than one male is likely to pursue a female and they each perform an undaluting display fight. The female builds a nest in a crevice or a hole in a building, tree, cliff or bank. The Nest is made from twigs grass and dead leaves, and is lined with feathers and wool. A cluth contains on average 5 or 6 eggs and after two weeks of incubation both parents feed the chicks.
