A brightly illuminated Cock Greenfinch ......

This image is as taken, full frame, not re-touched and looks exceptionally colourful due to the intensity of the spring sunshine.

The bird was only about fifteen feet away from the hide, it's close proximity, spring breeding plumage and very strong light have accentuated it's already stunning yellow / green hue.

Who says we don't have spectacular looking birds in the UK ?.


  1. They do look splendid in spring plumage and sunshine. Is this a Summer Leys bird, I only ask as I swear the Greenfinches there are more vivid then birds I see elsewhere

  2. Hi Douglas - Taken at Titchmarsh LNR.
