As the weather men are predicting for it to be reasonably mild over the Christmas period I thought I would present you with a little bit of snow!

Yesterday I went to Startop's End  Reservoir near Tring in Hertfordshire were sightings of a Jack Snipe had been reported during the last two days, needless to say it was spectacular in its absence!!
So I decided to have another look at the Snow Bunting that has taken up residence and has been showing well for over a week now.

So, here's your  'snow'  for Christmas...enjoy!

And a video...!

I must get my bum down there Trevor, and see this bird.
Cracking video.

These are fabulous shots Trevor, I have not been able to see this species yet. The North Norfolk coastline is a good spot for them.

Great pictures and marvelous video, you can tell that he/she is very fond of having you to film it, he has just finished washing and making itself perfectly dry.

A beautiful little snowfall.
Great video.
Have a great Christmas.

Thanks Roy, Maybe some decent weather over the holiday would be a good excuse for a trip 'up North', as they say!...[;o)

Thanks Bob, by all accounts it's a first winter male, and yeh, it did feel a little odd watching him during one of his more intimate moments!![;o)

The Herald said...

Thank you Adrian. One of the better types of snow!

Hope you have a great one too...[;o)
