Seaford Snow Bunting.

With a really sunny day at last yesterday it was a hunt for the male Snow Bunting that has been seen on Seaford beach over the last few days. With home commitments I was unable to get down there until yesterday and with several people looking it was not looking too encouraging as there was no sign of it. I decided to head along to Tide Mills where several Redshank and Dunlin were feeding, a Kingfisher was also seen. On the Pier a single Purple Sandpiper was sleeping. On the return to Seaford I met up with Pete and as we approached the Sailing Club another different Snow Bunting was showing. After a while we crept a little closer and the Bunting quite happily carried on feeding, it then flew up over our heads before landing quite a bit nearer to us where it had a bath in a puddle. A great experience with this lovely little bird.
