Snow Bunting at Sandy Point

I heard, a few weeks ago, that this is the warmest year on record since 1880, and today seemed to bear it out. It was over 50 degrees and I dressed too warmly.
Snow Buntings had been reported at Sandy point for several days, and I found them easily today. Lovely little birds.
I spent some time on the trails and found a few nice birds. I then went to Thomas Point, which appeared to be dead, but there were hundreds of birds too far out for images.
