I've never usually had to travel too far for Snow Buntings as I've always been able to get a good reliable small flock at Kinmel Bay for a few winters up until last year, when they didn't return. This could've been due to the main development of the new bridge in Rhyl creating a footpath over to the site and as a result, the disturbance was increased. Having already seen Snow Buntings on the Cairngorms earlier in the year, I was still keen to see this bird.
The lone male showed well and favoured the breakwater about half a mile south down from the café where it pottered around feeding occasionally and enjoying the backdrop of the Snowdonia National Park in front of it.
A lovely male Stonechat wasn't too far away and obviously was keeping it company.
