Lapland Bunting or Larkspur Lucky to see this on the Isle of Jura, fortunately a friend was able to identify it, as it's a rare visitor, I really struggled to identify it through the larks, pipits and other passerines.

Lapland Bunting or Larkspur

Lucky to see this on the Isle of Jura, fortunately a friend was able to identify it, as it's a rare visitor, I really struggled to identify it through the larks, pipits and other passerines. This is a 1st winter adult.
