Lovely photos, you can't go wrong with a bullfinch in your sights. My favourite little bird

Bull finches are a real treat to see because they are so bold and colourful. The few times l've seen them though l haven't been able to get a good photo. This fuzzy photo was the best l could do this time, and l only managed to snap one of them - there was actually three of them flying around just ahead of me 8)

Some good shots there... I think you've also got a few pink-footed geese mixed in with your greylags.
