Snow Bunting

A flock of 40+ Snow Bunting were on the land side of the shingle bank at the back of the beach at Salthouse, Norfolk this week.

Good views were to be had and I was able to tag onto a group of photographers who had put seed down giving excellent close ups.

Nice to see this bird at close distance. The difference between the white male bird and the females is very distinct.

A Lapland Bunting was amongst the group albeit that I only saw it at distance. a first for me.

Then moved down to Walsney Hills NOA and after a short while searching a lady spotted the three Shore Lark again a first for us. What a very attractive bird.

Great shots Mike, the plumage on the male is lovely.
