Female Chaffinch

By FeatherFriend
This is another shot taken at the Taken at the RSPB Abernethy National Nature Reserve whilst on holiday in Scotland recently. Sorry to be brief on this occasion but I am so busy de cluttering the house ready for what I hope will be an early sale on ours.
Thank you all for the votes and comments on the Otter, you are all so kind and I really do appreciate your support. As mentioned previously I will do my best to try and keep up with you all, but do excuse me if I do click and run now and again.
Regards,
Geoff.

hi there Geoff, thank you so much for your kind comment.
if i could ever capture a shot like this i would be made up, excellent capture

marc

p.s could you help me with ID please
i'v caught a bird today in next doors garden and i thought it was a chaffinch, but looking at your shot i don't think it is. is has red round it's eye and a vivid yellow stripe on it's wing, the rest of it is blach, white and tan. if you can't ID from my discription i will load it tomorrow as a chaffinch and hope that some will put me right.
i must buy a little ID book.
thanks again
