Snow Buntings on Severn Beach

November 10, 2012  •  2 Comments

There have been up to 6 snow bunting on Severn Beach over the last few days.  The approximate location is shown here on Streetmap.  They flit up and down the high tide line feeding on small seeds in amongst the detritus and are occasionally chased up and down the beach by dog walkers.  I had half an hour with them this afternoon and managed a few shots before they were flushed again by which time it was too overcast to be worth trying again.  Perhaps tomorrow?!
