Snow Bunting (Plectrophenax nivalis)

Found this one, a scarce visitor from more Arctic areas, on Thursday last out in Donabate - lovely little bird. There was a fair amount of human (and equine) traffic about but he was reasonably confiding. There were also a few Hooded Crows about so he was keeping an eye to the sky at times - as in the last one below.
