Lapland Buntings

Attractive little birds, in a quiet unassuming way, Lapland Buntings are trusting of humans, which means we can generally get quite close to them without them flying off. Three or four have turned up on a muddy track on Sandwich Bay, and have stayed for a few days.
The last (and indeed first) Lapland Bunting that I saw was on the beach at Minsmere, literally surrounded by a circle of about 20 people, looking at it and taking photos, while it carried on eating.
For stunning photos, look elsewhere (i.e. here)
