Today i was going to the Wetlands, but the weather here has been rain and misty, so that plan was out i will try again next week. So today i have a Bullfinch Male that i took back in June this year, these are my favorite British finch.

Thank you for the interest shown in my previous pictures.

The male is unmistakable with his bright pinkish-red breast and cheeks, grey back, black cap and tail, and bright white rump. The flash of the rump in flight and the sad call note are usually the first signs of bullfinches being present. They feed voraciously on the buds of various trees in spring and were once a 'pest' of fruit crops.

That's a fine finch Mike. I love them but they do play havoc with the fruit buds . A lovely pose and his breast glows . xx
