There seems to be a debate developing on the status of eastern forms of a number of species familiar in the U.K. fuelled by the late influx of 'eastern' birds recently. I can offer no insight into the status of such species or sub-species, I'll leave that to the 'experts' but I can offer some images of what was suggested was an eastern Yellow wagtail taken on the Shetland Isles this autumn.
