Snow Bunting (Plectrophenax nivalis)

The Snow Bunting breeds in the Arctic and is a rare winter visitor to the South Coast of England.
So far I've seen six Snow Buntings and it's always amazing to get so close to these beautiful and confiding little birds.
Here's a collection of my favourite snow bunting shots. Please click on the thumbnails for a larger version.
