5.11.19 Snow Bunting

Torrential overnight rain continued into the early morning with a light wind mostly in the NE sector.


A wet morning finished off any plans to head out looking for birds but news of a Snow Bunting filtered through on the WhatsApp group early afternoon just in time for a lunchtime visit to catch up with this little arctic wanderer. Where ever it came from it most surely spent the summer months above the arctic circle in the lands of the midnight sun. It was doing just fine avoiding the hikers as they passed unaware of its presence.

It’s the first I’ve seen on the headland and I’ve no idea who to thank for unearthing it!
