Chaffinch ( Fringilla coelebs ) One of the commonest and most widespread birds in Britain, favouring a wide variety of habitats including gardens, parks and woodland. In winter numbers are boosted by the influx of north european birds. Song comprises a descending trill with a characteristic final flurish. Feeds mainly on Insects during the summer months but seeds in the winter where they often gather in large flocks

Another great picture, Nicholas.

This chaffinch has the most gorgeous rich warm colors.
And he seems to know it, the way he tilts his head and looks at you.
Wonderful details showing off the intricate markings on the plumage.

Hello Nick,
A charming portrait of a male Chaffinch still with the ruffled and worn plumage after the breeding season.
The pose, sharpness and POV allow us to see every detail and subtle colour variation icluding the delicate green of the rump.
A fine capture in a fine composition and thanks for sharing it.
Have a good week,
