Thread: Lapland Bunting?

  1. #1

    Default Lapland Bunting?


    I have just seen in my garden what i think is a winter male Lapland Bunting? I managed to get some pics from range.
    Are these common up here as ive never seen one before?

    Without having seen the photos, I would say it probably is a Lapland Bunting.
    I am not sure as to how common or otherwise they are here as a wintering bird, but in my travels out and about I have sometimes seen
    what I believed to be them. They have the definite bunting body shape.
