Snow at last !

For the most it was blue skies and sunshine with just the occasional snow shower. No wind meant a clam sea to scan although it didn't produce anything different. 7 Great Northern Divers, a single Red-throated, scores of Long-tailed Ducks and a lone Guillemot. The Knot was at the Houb with the Golden Plovers. A check of the cabbages above the rig produced 2 Skylarks and 10+ Twite.

Whilst photographing a very obliging Blackbird (makes a change) a male Snow Bunting flew by calling, fortunately it didn't go straight through and showed incredibly well in a ditch beside the road. This makes up for the ones I missed last year (funnily enough in the same spot) and also made a nice patch tick.
