I wish my garden had some colour like this Ken. I've never seen a goldfinch here but this certainly cheers me up.

Now that's what I call focus...

90% sparrows and dunnocks in our garden. I know they're becoming scarce in other parts of the country but... not fantastically photogenic.

Splendid work!
Best wishes,

Andrew
