Lapland Bunting at Sker

(c) D. G. Carrington
  David Carrington found this Lapland Bunting next to Pink Bay pond. It showed very well from 15:30 to 17:00 at least in the small rough field next to the pond. This area is easily accessed by the footpath that runs alongside Royal Porthcawl Golf Club.

 Small numbers of Meadow Pipit and Sky Lark also feeding in this area with which it was associating loosely. It was feeding frantically and moving around all the time, sometimes flying short distances within the enclosure with the Meadow Pipits and Sky Larks.
