Hello. I took this photograph on the 22nd September near Merida, Spain. Is it a Pied or White Wagtail.

Hello Mike,
if I would see this bird in Germany, I wouldnt hesitate to ID it as a White Wagtail. Flanks are pale with just a slightly wash to the flanks. Back is pale. I would judge the "darkness value" of the back as medium (=there a slightly paler and slightly darker birds in Germany) and I get the feeling that the picture is not badly overexposed, as I see patten/feathers in the belly and the face.
