Grey Wagtail or Yellow wagtail w. winter plumage? South Sinai, Sharm el Sheikh, Egypt

I would say Grey wagtail, but I got the suggestion this might be a yellow wagtail in winter plumage.
Ideas anyone?

agree with yellow wagtail - grey wagtail has pink legs (if you get a good look at it)

Just a thought as to specific race. Anyone want to have a stab at specific race on this bird? Flava? Or, does it have a hint of Beema about the head pattern? And I'd like to know age and sex. Am guessing 2cy male, probably Flava. Any takers?
