This is a yellow wagtail on a roof in Pedi. Probably Motacilla flava subsp. flava or a yellow wagtail variant common throughout central Europe and possibly a female in winter plumage.

In this case a very early summer migrant on its way North.


Below is a pied wagtail or Motacilla alba subsp. alba in its winter coat and common to central and eastern Europe and here almost certainly a resident to Symi.
