What a lovely result ...........

A couple more images from my visit to Summer Leys LNR, Northamptonshire, last weekend.

The months surrounding the turn of the year are, in my opinion, the best time to photograph Bullfinches  whilst there is no foliage to get in the way, their contact calls also carry well on a windless day.

In my experience, if you see one Bullfinch the other members of the party will not be far was the case here.

Whilst the male is a stunningly handsome bird I have to say that I find the subtle plumage of the female more to my liking.
