just one more Yellow-browed but lets face it every one is a little stunner

one of the earliest ever Snow Buntings on my patch and a seriously nice bird; from the Birding Frontiers Challenge Series winter I make with a male nivalis and from the pattern of the primary coverts at least a 1cy male but I do need to study the finer details better!
from what I can see I took about 1000 photos of this bird yesterday! why? well I suppose because it was close and the first juv I have seen since 1983!!! - silly but true -- a supporting cast of Little Bunting, a few Yellow-browed Warblers, Great White plastic bag, Arctic Warbler - briefly and some nice energetic walking made for a tiring day -- lots to sort -- its all Spurn's fault -- really need to get out and do some work but its October

this fine male Bluethroat was at Spurn on Tuesday but I was on a long walk when it turned up so just the light weight camera gear, 7D2 and 400 5.6 to hand and I also missed the shot when it landed on the rocks next to me as the camera was still in the bag! nice bird though
