Snow Buntings (Ynyslas) taken on Monday 15th. November

After some information from Wendy, Jen and I decided to go up to Ynyslas as there was a report on the Ceredigion Bird blog about some Snow Bunting in a car park there. At first we did not see any birds, but about ten minutes after we arrived another car came in to the car park and the driver started throwing seeds down on the ground. We went over to him and set up the camera - there were 3 snow bunting eating away - 2 male and 1 female. Here are two of the photographs I took:

This is one of the two males, taken with my Canon 500mm lens, 1.4 converter, ISO1000 f8 @ 1/3,200sec.

This is the female - taken with exactly the same kit and settings except that the exposure was 1/4,000sec.
