Where did the Wagtail name come from?
Wagtails are pretty little birds from the Motacilla family. From spring to autumn they gather on the lawns outside Torchbox's offices, charming Torchbox staff and their visitors. Torchbox wanted a name which had a sense of light and delight. Plus birds make easy logos.
