Judging by the reports coming in today, the Lapland Bunting is still feeding at Sker Point in pretty much exactly the same spot as when I photographed it at the weekend. During my visit I took the opportunity to record a few video clips of the birds feeding behaviour as I was finding it hard to capture through stills. The video shows it taking seeds off the various plants (does anyone know what they are?) before settling down for a bit of light preening. If the bird starts to look a bit nervous towards the end it is because a walker was about to walk between me and it (a gap of no more than one meter) and thus flush it further away. Enjoy.
We kick off 2023 with a tick and twitch event at WWT Llanelli before enjoying Grey Plover at Newton Point and Turnstones at Sker.
