Bullfinch (Pyrrhula pyrrhula).jpg

Just a snatch shot of this amazing bird, he stayed in the bushes then flew away a few moments after I took this. But I got him, I have noticed fewer and fewer Bullfinches over the years, I wonder if it is because of predation? I know I have a reputation for putting up clear shots but this guy was not about to give me the opportunity, so here he is in the hedgerow. Maybe I'll see him another day, we'll see.
