Many thanks to you all for your kind comments. We have managed to arrange the funeral for next Thursday, my wife is still not taking her loss very well at the moment but things should be better after Thursday. Have not been out much but will try to get back to normal after next week. Kind regards. Brian.

4 cracking shots of the goldfinch, Brian.
Your subjects always manage to settle on such pretty perches.
Hopefully after Thursday Mrs. Brian will start to feel she is getting over the loss.
By best wishes to you both meantime.

Fabulous images again Brian. Hopefully after Thursday your wife will be able to come to terms with her loss.............always too much to organise initially which just adds to the pain. All the best to you both.
Many thanks for the time you spent on my pictures..........thought I might have sneaked my pathetic blue tit through without you seeing Blush
