Mr and Mrs Bullfinch

The Collared Doves of the finch world, with their propensity to do pretty much everything together, this pair of Bullfinches (Pyrrhula pyrrhula) weren't in the mood to break from type and each time visited, left and returned again to the bird table together. Perhaps being armed with those impressive beaks each is wary of having a cross word.

  2. Stunning shots Tim, I have never been able to get this species out in the open like this. They are always in amongst branches and never a clear shot.
