I spotted this chap from the kitchen window this morning as he was enjoying the seeds from a dandelion flower (has everyone else in the UK got dandelions everywhere - we seem to have a exceptional crop this year?)

Fortunately he stayed around just long enough for me to find the camera and capture a few images through the window. The seeds have a little motion blur as he was "chewing" them - no time to optimise ISO and other settings!

The bullfinch is stunning - the colours are wonderful.
I noticed there were lots of dandelions along sides of motorways
where they make a colourful display but not so good if they invade the garden.
