A male Brambling again from Sweden

There were so many new varieties of birds there that I had never seen..so it
was like being a child in a 'sweetie shop' excitement
again in bright sunshine

Thanks Bob for your User Award on the Hawfinch yesterday

and to you all for dropping by and commenting

Beautiful and a little bird I know so well as we had around 250 over-wintering here this year! Perhaps this is one of them! Tongue The woodland looks so magical but looks like rather hard work if you have to walk through it!

When I lived in Essex we had bramblings there (in another life!) but I haven't seen one since. A fine capture Lillian - it sounds as if you had value out of your trip.

Looking good in the sun, Lillian, gives a lovely catchlight in the eye. Bramling or brambling? I've heard of the latter, but then a three toed woodpecker is a new one on me too.

no I'm just kidding, it is a fantastic shot of my favourite finch. And please tell them they are welcome here in October on the way south.
