Bullfinch, Ferry Meadows

Ferry Meadows is having a real purple patch (thanks to the ever vigilant Matt Webb). Recent weeks have seen Turnstone, Black-necked Grebe, Spoonbill (yesterday) and Wood Warbler (this morning). Today Mike Weedon & I were in the area of The Mound where the Wood Warbler had been seen for reasons which may or not become apparent. There was little time for checking the warblers that were flitting about the trees so the bird may well have still been there. In any case this slightly tatty male Bullfinch did pose for a photo in a heavily laden Rowan.
