male Snow Bunting

assume this is a nivalis but reading Martin Garner's Winter Challenge series the white uppertail coverts and extensive white up the lower back are suggested features of Siberian Snow Bunting vlasowae but this bird did not look bigger than its compatriots on the beach at Meggies
the messy forehead and staining is due to them feeding on wet sand
