Snow on the beach

I have been waiting all winter for some Snow bunting to be reported locally as they are one species I had on my 'wish' list for this year but they have been scarce with the mild weather. Heard a report of two on the beach at Point of Ayr and went off to investigate. Took a while to find the two male birds as I walked off up the beach in completely the wrong direction!!! The two birds were working along the base of the dunes so where a little shaded from the light which made for some interesting exposure settings.

A dog walker flushed the birds and they end up on the base of the lighthouse where I took a couple more shots before leaving them there.
