Snow buntings again!

Snow buntingsSnow buntingsNine of these on Northam burrows, N.Devon After all the heavy rain and the extensive flooding last year no Snow buntings were spotted my local beach/sand dunes so this week when six were reported I was pleased to say the least. These birds were high on my want list so on Monday I went down to the area where they had been spotted, I located 9 and spent quite some time watching and observing, the forecast for the following day was good so I intended to return for photographs then.

On arrival today I quickly located the birds and slowly started to make my way behind them which was tricky as they were amongst the pebbles on the ridge of pebbles that form the sea defence. Despite not being able to keep very low or quiet whilst walking over these I managed to get in range for some shots. Staying still  and low the birds were quite comfortable with my presence so some fairly close-up shots were managed.
