Not absolutely sure of the ID for this little garden bird which I saw today at the top of a tree.
Thanks for your kind and supportive comments on my last two garden bird uploads, promise to put up something completely different tomorrow as you must be getting a bit fed up with my garden birds.
Regards Mary

It's a Siskin chirping away merrily, Mary.
Like the colour contrast between the yellow plumage of the bird and the blue sky.
Always try to get the birds eye in focus, this has focused on the branch/lower chest area.
