Snow Buntings...but not on my local patch!

Following reports during the past few days of Snow Buntings at Prinsted I decided to go and find them at the first opportunity of better weather and improved lighting conditions. The sun came out at noon today so we were off and were quickly directed by another birder to the spot where they were feeding. Just as we arrived they were 'spooked' by a dog walker but soon returned  and allowed a close appoach.....a pair of nice birds.
I have posted another 3 images on Flickr.
