Just back from a trip to Bonny Scotland, where the weather has been fine but very cold.

The dominant Robin would bully and fight with the other birds, so I thought I would get the D4 ready and try and capture the battles.
Here is an image of a Robin and Chaffinch fighting with the seed being scattered around them.

Many thanks for looking.
Kindest Regards
Burnsie

If it were mine I'd lose the baseline grass. If only to make it a stronger image but concede it would then take the context out of it. I'd rather the strong image though
