Motacilla alba.
There are many different sub spezies of this wagtail. In Europe you will find predominantly Motacilla a. alba. There is one special subspecies that has much more black on the neck and back found on the british Islands.
Here is a european bird from Kis Ballaton (little Ballaton) in Hungary.
