Snow Bunting (Plectrophenax nivalis)

I was very fortunate to get a brief chance to capture some shots of these two Snow Buntings as they flitted along the beach at Horsey Gap right beneath the dune embankment. It was a chance sighting by a friend (thanks Keith) as we were watching Grey Seals hauled out on the beach so I rushed ahead of their flight direction and waited using the 70-300m at full stretch.

Grey Seals at Horsey Gap

Access to the beach at Horsey Gap is restricted from November to January as this is an important breeding area for Grey Seals with pups being born from December through to January. I took these shots from the high natural sandy dune embankment whilst trying to keep still in the constant high winds.
