Black-headed Bunting

I have twice seen a male of these in Kinlochbervie, in NW Sutherland, in previous summers...amazing birds to see in a Scottish summer! They must overshoot to the north, for some reason.

North- western Overshoots

Ditto - I've found two others in the Hebrides, both in June; the females are much harder to identify and very drab by comparison
