Finished work a little early today and managed a couple of hours with the camera. This goldfinch made one appearance and I managed to get a few shots. Large is best if you have time.
Many thanks to Wilmot for the User Award yesterday, and to everyone for the C&Cs and the kind words regarding my mum. I really appreciate them all.

WOW WOW WOW
Steve is this at the Natural History Museum through glass...lol
I have never seen a Goldy looking so good. Brilliant exposure and sharp detail and an eye to die for.
Best bird tog I have seen on here for a very long time.
Think I like this one.
I was going out tomorrow with Ron after these will have to stick to Dartford Warblers now

Cheers Richard and all. Was hoping for a redpoll and although there were a couple around they didn't come anywhere near a perch. The goldy made up for some of the disappointment though!

This is Outstanding - Do all your shots come out as Superb as this, Please tell me you have to bin some lol. It really is Top Quality with a cracking BG to match. I need one now in my PF. By the way Steve i was at that place today for a about an hour and the GSW came down but was out of shot so i would of only got a head shot so i waited and just watched it then some dog barked and it flew off so missed it. But was amazing to see it so close up.
