Snow Bunting: I treated myself to another brilliant trip to North Wales, and ended up at Kinmel bay where I saw the most stunning bunting, the Snow Bunting.
 I am always amazed when I think Rhyl as it has some great birds, this time last year I was watching Great Northern Divers in the marina lake and you can never fail to see Snow Bunting too.
Meadow Pipit: There was a flock of around 12 fluttering around the beach and dunes, Snow Bunting are very trusting birds they were happily feeding just a few feet away from me.

On the beach there were also Oystercatcher  Ringed Plovers, Great Blacked Backed Gull and this very nice Meadow Pipit which was hanging around with the bunting.
