Hi all,
I got out in the hide this morning. So many visitors to the feeding station the birds were too quick to get them in the frame! Although, The finch's really put on a show. This is just one of the photo's from this morning.
Hope you like it.
Sam.

A cracker, Sam, and what a great background. Have you tried cloning out that oof branch in the background, I think it would improve the image. Carol
