A Missing piece to the spring arrives.

When we got back from our walk a bird flushed from the feeding area as I opened the back gate. It perched for a few seconds and I managed one picture




Later as I set my moth traps up for the night, and the sun was already setting, it arrived back in view on the water fall. Sadly that meant I need to use around ISO 5000, but the pictures are still usable. 


This year, so far hasn't been a good one for Bramblings, and time is running out, so I was good to get this very approachable bird this evening. Perhaps tomorrow will see an small flock feeding up before moving on. There are still a few Siskins around, and a couple were singing, in competition with the Goldfinches and noisy Chaffinches.
