After a superb view of a very smart male snow bunting on my Heights Hotel Birdbreak this weekend I decided to return to Maiden Castle to see if I could get some film of it.
The snow bunting was nowhere to be seen but I did manage to get quite close to this corn bunting.
In the background you can hear the jingly song of another corn bunting (I saw at least 10 this morning) and the more melodious song of a skylark.
Here is a video of the last snow bunting I saw, 2 years ago at Ferrybridge.
And a reed bunting at Radipole from last November.
