This is one of the very few small birds that I have ever photographed as they are usually quite tame and approach near enough for me to see in the first place, and allow me to capture with my limited telephoto lens.
A fine shot from you of this wee individual, Ed.

Super detailed shot. I haven't seen many chaffinches around this year and usually I have a lot around my feeders.
