Snow Bunting

A pair of Snow Buntings dropped in to RSPB Bempton Cliffs this weekend and the male bird was just outstanding. Just not quite full summer plumage missing its black bill but I couldn't complain it was a true little gem of a bird.

The female was present also but lacking the incredible plumage of the male but still a beauty to look at. This was my first Snow Bunting in a very close summer plumage and as you can see from the images above - what a cracker!
