A Greenfinch (Carduelis chloris) perching on an ornamental, potted yew shrub, which I had positioned in front of the red acer, to get the background. Had a long wait before a bird decided to perch on it and this Greeny was the only one, that day, who decided to inspect!

Many thanks for your C&Cs on yesterday's Great Tit upload - very much appreciated, as always Smile

That wonderful acer is providing you with the background to many a fine image, Sylvia, this one being no exception. Carol

Wish mine would return - there quite a few around the feed station, just before I resumed my Autumn photography there - since then - zilch - they all looked in exceptional health too - same goes for the Goldfinches
