Delightful flock of Snow Buntings in the wind and sunshine today.

Variously sunning themselves, preening and gorging on the seeds in the shingle.

You can just about see the feathered tarsi in this image.

Plus the body feathers that can also cover the naked parts of the bird's legs.

These help the bird survive the cold (below -30°C at times) in its Northern breeding grounds.

Snow Bunting (Plectrophenax nivalis)

The Northern most breeder of any land-based bird.

They breed on exposed bits of Tundra that stick above the surrounding ice.

These islands are called 'nunataks'

Sabine's Gull (Xema sabini)

More normally seen out at sea this one has spent the last few weeks in Langstone Harbour.

A very confiding individual. Literally flying around the heads of assembled viewers.

There was a breach in the sea wall and this provided a feeding focus for the bird as the water drained through the breach as the tide went out.

A small fungus found in the leaf axils of Soft-tufted Beard-moss (Didymodon vinealis)?

Leaves adpressed to the stem when dry.

Taken with a x10 microscope objective


Looking at the Bryophilous Fungi Website

This is likely to be

Bryostroma trichostomi

George R L Greiff replied via Twitter

Almost certainly :) There are couple of other Bryostroma species that
can grow on Didymodon so it's worth checking spores.
95% of the time for me it is B. trichostomi.


I don't think I'm up to this challenge.

Any oneelse - Stuart?

This was later confirmed by George and was a first for Norfolk
