First year Snow Bunting at Newlyn, Cornwall

This morning's light was stunningly clear and I was able to take some nicely focussed images of this very obliging Snow Bunting at Sandy Cove.  I'm assuming that given the amount of black in the wing feathers, this is a young male.

The images were taken with the 300mm F/2.8 VR and 1.4x teleconverter.  Tripod mounted.


  1. Good quality Steve the good lighting makes all the difference.

  2. Great shots Steve,this was one obliging bird, I see what you mean about the Barred Warbler we must have hit the shutters at the same time.
