Corn Bunting

The Corn Bunting is a bird of open farmland. 
I know of one location where they can be seen, but the approach is difficult and these shots were taken from a car window.
The population is in serious decline and is 'Red Listed'.


Not the prettiest bird in the World, but I am always glad to find one and get close enough to it for a photograph. 
Males are polygynous with up to three females in a breeding season. (What can I say?)

  1. Great shots, Roy. There used to be a lot of them around here, but it's getting more difficult to find them lately, which rather reflects the national situation.

  4. We have loads of them around here but before our move I never saw one! They come and perch on our front hedge and sing. They also like perching on telegraph wires as well. P.S. The hill fort on a previous post is very interesting and amazing the sheer size of it!
