Orme Snow Bunting 15.oct.11

Dipped the DicPip twice but saw the Snow Bunting twice and on my second visit to the cairn area i put my scope down, waited, and the bird walked literally right up to me, well within 2 metres, passed me and stopped to feed within 4 metres for 20mins or so.  All my shots are digi-scoped (with my Panasonic Lumix means the zoom has to be on x60) and with the bird being so close, then cropped on the computer, makes for some close-up shots.  Bird still there when I left, all good.
