Thanks for the votes/comments on my previous upload, much appreciated as usual.
Went up Cannock Chase this morning walking around a few mile looking for the Grey Shrike, no luck so went to my normal spot and was lucky enough to get a shot of the male bullfinch in overcast conditions. It was pretty quiet on the bird front.

Still quiet up there then Derek? This is a cracker of a bully shot though - so more than worth the visit. Shame you didn't see the Shrike. Lou
