A male Bullfinch taken in my back garden, we have been very blessed with a great variety of Birds including this Male, he was not alone and was with 2 female Bullfinches.
being a shy Bird the only way posible to get this close was to get the hide out and sit there with a bottle of red wine and enjoy the view Smile.

An amber listed Bird so quite rare.

A beauty, Ian.
It's quite possible that the 2 that you say were females may well have been
the kids as they are very similar.
