200/365 Dunlin Calidris alpina


The small pools at Salthouse in Norfolk are a great place to photograph small wading birds at close range.  Last week was no different with a small group of juvenile Dunlin feeding between 3-10 metres away from where I was positioned. A great way to spend a morning.

084/365 Lapland Bunting Calcarius lapponicus


Todays image, number 084, is of a Lapland Bunting.  This particular individual was photographed at a well known photography hotspot known as Salthouse, where during the winter months, small numbers of Lapland’s join forces with the more numerous Snow Buntings around the coastal pools here.
