Snow Bunting Wallasey

I couldn't resist this little gem on the way back from Liverpool. Reports saying it was showing ridiculously well were for once true.

As well as picking at seed heads amongst the seaweed washed up in the recent storms it spent a lot of time catching small flies on the seawall.

It also found a few caterpillars in the grass alongside the cycle path and disembowelled them as adeptly as a Cuckoo. I've never seen Snow Buntings eat caterpillars before!
