When we lived in Nunavut, before moving to Lochaber, we used to see clouds of Snow Buntings regularly in the spring and summer. Since they and Ravens (oh, and Ptarmigans, but one rarely saw them) were the only birds around, it was always a treat to see the Snow Buntings. Anyway, we were truly delighted to find Snow Buntings here in Lochaber. Perhaps two years ago we had a small flock arrive and visit our feeders for a few days. Since then, it seems there’ve only been a couple or more often just one Snow Bunting visit very occasionally. Here are a few photos taken over the past week.
