All this snow around & a bright sunny afternoon, had to have another look on Soil Hill for the Snow Buntings.
Tried yesterday but couldn't find them - There were Redwings, Linnets, Skylarks & a few Twite, but didn't get the Buntings yesterday.
Cracker of an afternoon, with them running around like mice in the snow, with myself & another chap in tow.

If you haven't been up to see them, nows a good time - They appear to be very happy in the snow & kept "snowbathing" every now & again, & the most awesome close views.
