Snow in June............

10th June 2020  : Walmer Kent.

Wood Mouse

I had enjoyed an afternoons birding at Stodmarsh , seeing plenty of Hobby , lots of Common Terns over the main lake & earlier in the Alder Wood a delightful Wood Mouse was very entertaining.

I made another quick stop on my way home and then news came through of a summer plumage Snow Bunting near the bandstand at Walmer nr Deal.

It was less than 30mins away , i had to go and try to see this superb plumage bird which you would only normally see in the high mountain ranges of the Cairngorms in this plumage.

We normally only get to see winter plumage birds in Kent , so of i set and i was soon enjoying some fantastic views of a  Snow Bunting.

Here are a small selection of photo's ;

Snow Bunting

I celebrated seeing this stunning bird with a bag of chips & a can of coke from the local chippy, great way to end the day !!!!
