Greenfinch
This greenfinch popped along whilst I was photographing a very regal-looking wood pigeon perched atop a tangle of bare hawthorn branches by the canal. It sang the loveliest song, posed for a few shots and then departed, leaving me jumping for joy at nabbing the best shots I’ve ever gotten of a greenfinch.

Having been unexpectedly very busy at work, I'm off to the pub to celebrate Revolting Colonial Day.

Thanks! They never visit the feeders in our garden, which is part of why I've had problems getting good photos of them. We get loads of goldfinches on the feeders, but the greenfinches are aloof and have to be tracked down in the hedgerows.
