Seasonal Snow

Snow Bunting at Newton (c) M. Hipkin
Dean Bolt found this very nice Snow Bunting at Newton on 14/10/11. It was still present yesterday and showing particularly well in nice afternoon light. It's worth keeping an eye out for them along coastal tracks and paths with some good numbers around the country at the moment. Snow Buntings can easily be overlooked due to their reluctance to fly unless absolutely necessary. Check out the link below for a bit of video of the bird.
