Snow Bunting

A few of these birds live and breed in Scotland but the majority of Snow Buntings arrive in the UK each winter from Greenland and Scandinavia.  They usually head for areas of coastal farmland or high moorland.




Snow Bunting

Snow buntings get their name from the way they move through the air.  Swaying from side to side in flocks their bright white plumage can look just like a flurry of snowflakes.
