  1. Snow Bunting

    Snow Bunting

    One of a flock of around 40 birds present in area on-and-off over the winter. The area these were favouring is regularly "seeded" to attract the birds - at least in part I'd guess to make them easier to trap and ring! This individual just one of the birds already rung (banded). Caught in...
  2. Lapland Bunting

    Lapland Bunting

    Long-staying bird present for previous few weeks though as it's on it's own it can be tricky to find given how unobtrusive it can be and how cryptic its' plumage is in it's chosen location and habitat.

    Mandarin ducks

    I feel like these belong here in the UK. I am always delighted to see them. But I never saw more than 2 at once, and here, there were 6 waiting for me, as if to distract me from the woodpeckers failing to put up an appearance
