I nearly called this one "Thank you Lord" ! In the last few years I have had 2 sightings of bullfinches in my garden. Needless to say I wasn't set up. This evening, we had a real downpour and just as it was stopping there was some frenzied feeding going on at my feeders. The usual sparrows and a couple of my now resident goldfinches. So I went upstairs, grabbed the camera, stuck it through the bedroom window, focussed on one of my perches to set up, and within 2 seconds this male bullfinch appeared in the viewfinder. I almost fell over with excitement but rattled off half a dozen shots before it flew off. Its a first for me and was at the top of my wishlist. Hope you like it as much as I do
