Birds of a feather flock together; Sand dunes, Dornoch beach

While I was wandering along the beach yesterday morning in search of some crows and gulls to photograph I spotted a flock of 50+ small birds flitting through the dunes occasionally coming to rest and feeding on the tall stalks of maram grass. Intrigued I set off in pursuit (not easy in snow covered sand dunes). It took me the best part of 30 minutes to get close enough to get this shot, and a while longer to actually get close enough to identify them.
