Hi all, haven't been out with the camera for a while due to other urgent matters that need attending to so here's another Bullfinch from the archives. As the chest colour on some of my previous one's have seemed to be a little orange I have tried to correct that by choosing a different WB in the RAW file.

Many thanks for taking time out to view and comment on my Blue Tit 7, very much appreciated as always,
Regards,
Geoff.
