I have a theory regards cliched images - the reason that they have been seen a million times and become cliched is that they work - as such i personally have no issue with pride preventing me from shooting them again.

Owls on finger-posts, Blue-Tits on milk bottles, Robins on handles / watering cans etc - i will continue to shoot them all alongside other images.

Here are a couple of these cliched shots as well as a couple of standard shots of a pair (possibly) of Bullfinch for your commentary.

thanks for the comment folks... forgot to say that, although i would generally not advocate such, the Bullies were taken through glass due to the infrequency of their visits
