Snow Bunting - Norfolk

One of my lifer birds on my Norfolk trip was the Snow Bunting. I'd made numerous trips up to Winter Hill on the Horwich Moors to try and catch a glimpse of one of these birds. Weather conditions were always against me. Whether it was fog, rain or falling ice, I always drew a blank. So when I managed to catch up with these lovely little birds in Norfolk at the end of January, I was absolutely delighted. Once again using the car as a hide, I managed some ok shots. Not great, but pleased to get something of a bird that had proved to be rather elusive for me.




Not a great shot but it looks like the Snow Bunting and Turnstone are having a nice little chat.

  3. Excellent!! My goodness, this is an awesome looking bird. Oh, and the one photo of the bunting and turnstone 'chatting'...is great. The sunlight upon the two make it even more enchanting. Thanks for linking up at the Bird D'Pot this weekend.
