Another session with the Lapland Bunting ...Plus Purple Sandpiper

Lapland Bunting at Swalecliffe.

I decided to pop over to Swalecliffe again this morning to have another look at the Adult winter Lapland Bunting as the weather was much brighter then last Sunday , here are a selection of photo's i took this morning.

The Lapland Bunting was still near the wooden bridge when i first arrived and then after being flushed by a dog flew towards the start of the grass path and proceeded to show very well in glorious sunshine .

After enjoying great views of this delightful Bunting i decided to call in at Hampton Pier and try and add Purple Sandpiper to my year list, it didn't take me long to find a single Purple Sandpiper on the rocks among several Turnstones and Gulls , i took several digi scope shots and here are a small selection.
