Snow Bunting
Plectrophenax nivalis
The Snow Bunting is a rare winter visitor and autumn migrant to Severnside. It is most often reported as a fly over bird in the autumn. If you are lucky  you may occasionally see one or even a small party feeding on a weedy shingle beach. They can be very tame and approachable to a few metres. Below are some  scanned images of  35 mm prints that I obtained of a fine male bird at New Passage in December 1997. There are also some digital pictures of an obliging individual taken at New Passage on 23rd November 2003, another at Severn Beach on 20th December 2007 and some of a party of 6 seen at Severn Beach in November 2012.
