Lesser Redpoll - Carduelis cabaret

By Mike_Young
Greeting all,
A real "Lockdown" treat for me this morning at my allotment plot, another visit from a lovely little Redpoll, only the third visit that I'm aware of in over 24 months. I know there are lots in Surrey(UK) at the moment but to have one visit my pond for a drink is very special to me.
I am even more delighted to get an image with a near perfect reflection of the bird in my pond. The pond wasn't designed as a reflection pool for photography but a recently added log in the water created a good opportunity . The ripple on the water was as a result of the bird dipping its beak to drink.
Thank you for looking, hope you enjoy.
