Redpoll 'Carduelis flammea'

By SocksAndStuff
A bit dull and drizzly out and about today after what looked like a promising start, but brightened up no end by the appearance of 2 beautiful Redpolls at Belvide (WMBC) in Staffordshire. I've previously seen loads of these over the Winter / Spring months, usually in mixed flocks with Siskins, but this is my first of the year and so extra special. Such beautiful little birds. They didn't hang around for more than a few moments unfortunately. Also, had a brief sighting of a female Brambling at the same site - I'll see if any shots are worth showing - the light was dreadful.
