    Beautiful picture of a snow bunting Kev…… how close could you get!

    Hi Martin and many thanks -not too close , as they were very skittish in the high wind-plus a Merlin about! Still , I managed about 60/70 feet during breaks in the gale force wind  Standing still was best as they kept coming back to the same area-give me a shout if you want details. A couple more pics on the Ceredigion blog.Cheers Kev.
