Spotted in my garden this morning. It was walking around the garden like a wagtail, but I'm not sure what it is. Any ideas?

This certainly looks like a juvenile wagtail, Brian.  The markings are right and going by the colour in the bottom photo it would appear to be a juvenile yellow wagtail.  The colouring in the top photo seems a little warmer but perhaps its a trick of the light.  Grey wagtails have the same markings but their backs are generally grey so I would sway towards the former.
