Snow but no ice...








A quick trip to Blyth was 50% successful - I could not locate the immature iceland gull that has been frequenting the south harbour, but two snow bunting were readily available - feeding on the small sand dunes just over the wall. Although flighty, the snow bunting provided some delightful photographic oportunities in nice light. Upon arival home the iceland gull was reported again on the pager - so maybe I'll try again...

Thanks AM, Snow Buntings are always a delight - even at Blyth(!)Let's hope there are plenty this winter, maybe with a Lap Bunt and Shorelark thrown in for good measure!
