First 2013 Bullfinch
A handsome male Bullfinch with peachy pink breast was perched in a bush just behind our currently flowering Mahonia bush which nicely framed this perched bird in the back right hand corner of the garden early this morning feeding on something presumably seeds or buds between 9.50am and 10am. Of course, he had disappeared by the time I retrieved my camera! At midday, I could see no sign of the GND in Hamilton Dock on a quick visit there.
