Snow Buntings still on the North Bull Island.

For the last few months there has been an average of six Snow Bunting hanging about the beach on Bull Island. I went to see these birds back in November and was surprised to see they have hung around for so long. In saying that, there has been birds coming and going as where there were no female birds originally, they have been joined by a juvenile female now but there are still only 6 birds. So the group has changed but not the number. They have to be one of my favourites, especially the adult males, they can be so striking in appearance. I took a few snaps recently so I`ll attach them below.
