Video of the Sker Point Lapland Bunting

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.
