Horned Lark and Snow Buntings.

Paths seem to attract several of our winter visitors. The higher edges collect good numbers of seeds and these are the attraction. The path behind the South Foreland still is playing host to a splendid Shore Lark and a small group of Snow Buntings. The only problem is that this is a popular walk with dog walkers and of course this unintentionally disturbs the feeding birds

 Shore Larks are winter visitors from that breed further north. The name Shore Lark is a British name because of their frequent winter habitat. The universal name of Horned Lark makes much more sense.
