Hawfinch and Garganeys

The sun really brings out the colours in this lovely image by Richard Tyler
Some more photos of my garden Hawfinch here, taken this morning by Richard Tyler, in perfect conditions (above and below).
We think this could be a different individual
The definite highlight of a trip to the forest later with Andy and Mark was the group of four Garganeys (three drakes and a female) on north Cannop Pond. The birds showed down to a few feet giving absolutely cracking views. Other than the Garganeys, still pretty quiet in the forest; very few finches about generally but we did see some nice Bramblings at Parkend Church.
