Snow Buntings

I took a trip last week to North Wales, hoping to photograph Crossbills. I arrived at the forest to find a couple of inches of snow on the roads, a stiff cold breeze and very little in the way of birds. I didn't hang around for too long and headed up to the coast where a group of Snow Buntings have been spending the last few winters. Thanks to people regularly putting seed down for them, there is now quite a flock developing. It's a shame that they always leave in the spring before their breeding plumage develops. A few other species are in attendance too including Meadow pipits and on the shoreline were a group of Sanderling, these were the birds in my last post.
