An antique print of a Grey Wagtail professionally framed in a style that works and compliments the age and Period of the print.
Features a truly beautiful tone of yellow with subtle blue-grey feathers.
The grey wagtail is more colourful than its name suggests with slate grey upper parts and distinctive lemon yellow under-tail. Its tail is noticeably longer than those of pied and yellow wagtails. They have gradually increased their range in the past 150 years and in the UK have expanded into the English lowlands from the northern and western uplands.
The print is an authentic original from "A History of British Birds", published in London, 1870.
The print itself is in great condition but there may be minor blemishes to the paper commensurate with age - as to be expected with any paper material 150 years old.
With string on the back and foam padded corners this is ready to hang.
